Why can't he find the *.dbx file folder in his old computer,copy the dbx files to a disk and then copy them over to the corresponding folder on his new computer OR use the import option on his windows mail program?
I'm assuming that you're using Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail to download your emails into your computer.
If so, as Sheila suggests, all of these programs include an Export function on the File menu. Export your messages to a USB drive or a CD as a .csv file. Then on your new computer, do the same thing in reverse by importing them.
Ex plorer's information is incorrect. This is only true if your are using IMAP, have ticked the box to leave messages on the server or you are exclusively using webmail. The remainder of the post's should work for you.
Thanks for your replies. Unfortunately I do not know how to find the dbx file. When I click on export in the OE file I says This will export messages from OE to MS Outlook or MS exchange. It does not give chance to send to disk or flash card. For the information of lotvic the email programme is Outlook Express on old computer and will probably be the same on new.
