3. drag your messages that you want to the XP computer to the desktop backup mail folder you most drag emails you cannot drag and drop folders.
4. when you are done move the folder on a USB stick or something and move it to your desktop on your xp computer.

In Outlook, you can use the Import and Export Wizard as the interface for Address Book conversion. To convert a WAB file, follow these steps: 1. Start Outlook if it is not currently running. 2. On the File menu, click Import and Export. 3. Select Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next. 4. Select Outlook Express 4.x, 5 from the list, and then click Next. 5. Select the product for which you wish to convert items from the list, and then click Next. 6. Select any combination of the Mail or Addresses from the items listed.

NOTE: With the exception of rules conversion from Outlook Express, the steps to convert addresses is the same. 7. Click Next. 8. Select a destination for the imported address data. The destination depends on the type of Outlook installation you selected initially. a. The Internet Mail Only installation of Outlook 98 allows only the Contacts folder as the destination. b. The Corporate or Workgroup option allows the options of Personal Address Book or Outlook Contacts. 9. Select the appropriate duplicate items option. Click Finish to complete the import.
Hope that helps..........

Where is outlook express in ie7? so i can setup my mail settings.


Outlook express is not actually in internet explorer, it is it's own program. If you click on start and click on email at the top usually outlook express is the default that will open up.

Otherwise you can find it by clicking start, going to programs and locating it. Or you can click start, go to search, and type in outlook and it will find it for you =).

Can i use Outlook Express


I've checked the knowledge library and i have seen this article regarding your query. You are limited to Mail synchronization for Outlook Express. A third-party conduit is required to synchronize your Outlook Express Address book also. A conduit is supplied free with the Mac version of Outlook Express. We are not aware of any available conduit for the Windows Address Book of Outlook Express Think of it in terms of databases: Microsoft Outlook contains email, calendar, contact, to do and notes databases that are analogous to the similar databases on your handheld. Microsoft Outlook Express contains only email and contact databases.
