Ok,if you can access the hard drive of your old computer,try to search for inbox.dbx ,outbox.dbx and so on,include hidden files when searching..outlook express uses .dbx extension to compress its messages,once you have it,you can export it to outlook express of different computer,i dont think it can be read by windos mail caus it might be using a different file extension,try downloading mozilla thunderbird,it reads dbx files..

It is not uncommon for a person to have more than one email account.
Most email service providers offer their customers a way to import email contacts and messages from other email accounts into the account maintained by the provider.

Some email service providers, such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail, have an email migration tool built in to their email interface.

Other providers, such as Comcast, direct their customers to use the TrueSwitch email migration tool.

Log in to your Gmail account.


Open the Gmail settings menu by clicking the pinwheel icon located in the top right corner of the window. Select "Mail setting."

Go to the "Accounts and Import" tab.
Click "Import mail and contacts."
Follow the on-screen instructions to import your address book from another email account into your Gmail account. Import Address Book Into Yahoo Mail Account

Log in to your Yahoo mail account. Click "Contacts."
Open the "View" drop-down menu. Select "All Contacts."
Open the "Tools" drop-down menu. Select "Import."
Click "Others."
Follow the on-screen instructions to import your address book from another email account into your Yahoo mail account.

Transfer Email to a Different Server

Each of the free-email providers has its own server on which to store the emails in its system. Gmail from Google, Hotmail from Microsoft, Yahoo! mail from Yahoo! and the rest all run their own servers, and one account from one server cannot go into another from a different server.

So if you've switched from Yahoo! to Gmail and want to get all the emails stored in the Yahoo! server over to the Google server, you have to transfer that email data.

Luckily, since the services are free, transferring the email is also free.
Log into your email account in the server that you are looking to transfer to.

So if you are transferring from Yahoo! to Gmail, log into your Gmail account.
Click on the "Settings" or "Option" button for your email address and then click the "Accounts" or "Accounts and Imports" button to look at the accounts.


Click on the "Import from another account" or "Add account" buttons and then type in the log-in information for the account that you want to transfer the emails from.
In the example given, you are transferring from Yahoo! to Gmail so you will need to type in your Yahoo! log-in information.

Wait for the server to transfer all of the contacts and email from the old server (Yahoo!) to the new server (Gmail).

Get My Yahoo Mail Moved to My Gmail Account

Nearly everyone has multiple email accounts for different purposes, and occasionally you may need to transmit information from one account to another.

Gmail makes it easy to import data from other Internet email providers via the TrueSwitch email migration service.

You can use TrueSwitch to migrate all of your Yahoo email data without even leaving the Gmail program window.

Navigate to the Gmail website and log in to your Gmail account.
Click the "Tools" icon in the upper right corner of the program window and click "Mail settings" in the drop-down menu.


Click the "Accounts and Import" tab in the settings window.
Click the "Import mail and contacts" button to start the mail import wizard.


Type your Yahoo email account address in the text field and click the "Continue" button.
Type your Yahoo email account password in the text field and click the "Continue" button.


Check the box next to each type of data that you want to import from your Yahoo email account. You can choose to import contacts, mail, and new mail that you receive within 30 days.
You can also specify a label that you want attached to all imported mail. Click the "Start Import" button.

The TrueSwitch service will begin importing the desired data.
It may take between several hours and two days for all of your data to be imported from your Yahoo account.

I get the main acer screen but it wont boot. Just goes to a blank screen with a flashing line in the top left corner, any suggestions?


you possibly have a virus in your boot sector. fi you have access to a different computer with internet you can get a free virus tool from avast to create a boot time scanning disk(dvd) to check and remove. another way is to create a windows 7 recovery disk(dvd/cd) to boot to it and recover your boot sector and rewrite it so the correct boot code. this is done simply by following the startup when booting to the dvd/cd and repair your computer option. another source of your problem could very well be a bad hard drive or loss of data on your drive. i would be able to assist you further with a telephone call if you like you can email me at maranathaenterprises@live.com. hope this helps.

Need to save and transfer all e-mails to a new computer


First of all, I assume that all the email account settings have already been setup within Outlook on the new computer (as you have been using Outlook on the new computer successfully to send and receive email).

If you want to transfer your files you will need to copy the Outlook PST file from your old computer to your new computer.
To find the location of the PST file, open Outlook on the old computer and in the left-hand pane you should see a listing of all your email folders, with the root heading being “Personal Folders”. This is your Personal Folders PST file which contains all your email.
  1. Right-click on the “Personal Folders” heading and select “Properties”.
  2. In the Properties window that appears for Personal Folders, click the “General” tab and the “Advanced” button.
  3. In the next window that appears there should be a field called “Filename”. This denotes the location of the PST file which contains all the email and folders within your Personal Folders PST file. Write down the location of the PST file and then click “Cancel” twice to close the two open windows. (It should be someting like C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst)
  4. Open Windows Explorer or My Computer and navigate to the location of your PST file. Be aware, you may need to enable the display of hidden files and folders to see the path to the PST file, as it might be a hidden path. To do this, go to the “Tools” menu > “Folder Options”. In the window that appears, click the “View” tab and enable “Show hidden files and folders” then click OK to save and close.
  5. Once you have located the PST file you can confirm that the file is correct by looking at the size of the PST file – it should be quite large - mine is about 1.2 GB!
  6. Copy this file to a USB hard drive or USB stick if you have one that can hold the size.
  7. Once the file has been copied to the USB hard drive, disconnect the USB hard drive from your old computer and then connect it to the new computer.
  8. Copy the PST file to a memorable location, such as the desktop (this is only temporary, and this PST file will be removed once the email transfer has been completed).
  9. Now it is time to import the contents of the old PST file into your installation of Outlook on the new computer by using the in-built Outlook import function.
  10. Open Outlook on the new computer then go to the “File” menu > “Import and Export”. The Import and Export Wizard window will appear.
  11. Select “Import from another program or file” and click “Next”.
  12. On the next screen asking you to choose the file type, select “Personal Folder File (.pst)” and click “Next”.
  13. The next screen will ask you to select the file to import.
  14. Click the “Browse” button and navigate to the location to which you copied the PST file from your old computer (in our example before this was the Desktop).
  15. Under “Options” select one of the options depending on how you wish the import to behave. I suggest you leave this at the default setting of “Replace duplicates with items imported” as you should not have any duplicates.
  16. Click “Next”. This last screen before the import allows you to specify exactly what should be imported. If you wish to import everything from your old PST file (i.e. mail, calendar, contacts, etc.) then underneath “Select the folder to import from” choose the root “Personal Folders” node as this will import everything underneath “Personal Folders” in your old PST file. As you can see, this includes emails and also the calendar, contacts, and other folders.
  17. Make sure “Include subfolders” is ticked and enable “Import items into the same folder in” then select “Personal Folders”. This will import all the data under your old Personal Folders into your new Personal Folders.
  18. Click “Finish” to commence the import. It could take a while considering the number of emails which need to transfer across.
Once the process has completed check the results. If you are satisfied then you can safely delete the copied PST file from your old computer to the desktop, as all the data from that file has been imported into your PST file for your installation of Outlook on the new computer. I would advise to burn it on a CD/DVD (depending on the size of the file) or store it somewhere else - it is always a good idea to keep a backup.

If you have any more questions or this description is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
