transfering email from w98 to xp in OE

  Garry-268791 23:01 09 Feb 2003

I have just bought a new laptop that runs onXP pro. My old one ran on win98. I have backed up my email in OE but cannot transfer to Xp. i can move my inbox and delete box but xp does not recognise other foldrs even though I know they have been moved across using a zip drive. I can see them in the folder but when I open up OE they are not visable. Any advice would be appreciated.

How did you back up your email. Have you saved the messages in the .eml format or did you save the messages from the Microsoft Identities/OE and in the .dbx format.

You can't just copy the folders. You need to run the Import wizard - under File in OE.
