Retrieve Outlook 2003 Messages from HD

  axelbrora 22:32 02 Sep 2008


I have just upgraded to Vista after being unable to start XP SP.

I was using previously using Outlook 2003 for emails and have saved all of the Microsoft office folders to a separate partition on my hard drive. Vista also saved all of my windows folders to windows.old.

I am now using Windows Mail and need to retrieve all of my old emails. when i try to import from Outlook in Windows Mail I get the error message: "message cannot be imported from the MAPI client"

Any advice on how to retrieve these would be appreciated.

You will need to find a pst file named Outlook.

Probably too late now but I would have exported my e-mails to a pst file as a backup and then imported this file.
