I wish to download windows outlook express to my new computer. I would like to transfer all the data including email addresses from my office PC onto this new Toshiba laptop


  1. Open Outlook Explorer.
  2. Right-click on the Folder at the top of the left pane, and, from the context menu that appears, select Properties (see Figure 1 below). If you are using Outlook 6, you need to expand the Folders and right-click on the Inbox (see Figure 2 below).
  3. When you select the Properties option, you are presented with a dialog box with the location of the Outlook folders (see Figure 3 below). The full path is displayed as a label in Outlook 6 and as a text box under the Advanced tab in Outlook XP or 2000.
  4. Select the entire path from "C:\" to "\Outlook Express". Do not copy the filename given after "\Outlook Express." For example, if the path is C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{B7ABE5FE}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Inbox.dbx, you need only the C:\Documents and Settings\Arun\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{B7ABE5FE}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.
  5. Copy, paste, and save this path in a text file.
  6. Open a Windows Explorer window, and paste the path into the address bar and press Enter.
  7. Before proceeding to copy the folders to a CD or flash drive, you need to check if there are any hidden files or folders in the Outlook Express folder. To check this, check the Show Hidden Files and Folders in the View tab of the dialog box that you get when you select Folder Options in the Tools menu.
  8. The next step is to select all the files and folders in the Outlook folder. If you are using a version previous to Windows XP, you will need some CD burning software to copy the files to the CD. Otherwise, you can simply paste the files to the CD or flash drive. Do not forget to copy the text file containing the path in both cases.
  9. You now have all the emails, calendars, tasks, and other important things from Outlook, but you may also want to copy the address book. To copy the address book, use the Export option in the File menu of the Outlook Express. Once exported, use the method described above to copy it to the flash drive or to the CD. Now you are all set to move your Outlook messages to the new computer.
  10. Boot the new computer. Use the path you stored in the text file to open the Outlook Folder on the new computer. To do this, copy the path from the text file, open a Windows Explorer window, paste the path into the address bar, and hit Enter.
  11. Copy all the files from the CD or flash drive to the Outlook Express folder. When you are prompted to overwrite the files and folders, select Yes to All.

Some e-mails go out and Mountain Cable sends some back saying for us to "plain text". Idon't know what they mean.


When you send your mail, it is send in two different formats according to the setting in the options. They are either HTML, Plain text or Rich text. I assume that you may be using outlook express or MS outook.
Yours seems to be sending mail in HTML. Though this is a better way, some companies/persons do not accept mail in HTML format. There a several reasons, most common being security. In such cases you may have to send that particular mail in Plain text format.
For Outlook:
1. click tools
2. click options
3. click mail options tab
You will see the mail sending format as HTML
There will be an arrow button, which when clicked gives you a few options, like HTML, Rich Text and Plain text.
4.Click on plain text.
5. click OK

For outlook express.
1. Click Tools
2. click Options
3. Click send tab
4. Change the Mail sending radio button to Plain text.
Newer version of some Third party mail programs gives you an option of send in HTML and Pain Text. If you have that option, select it. Makes things a whole lot easier.

I just bought my first Cruzer 4gb. Flash drive. I'd like to put mail from Outlook Express from two different computers on this drive. Then, I'd like to be able to carry the drive back and forth between...


It is possible but your choice of drive would not be mine as they are prone to failure.

It is pretty simple to create a folder on a flash drive, lets say called "mail"

Then you could tell outlook express to change the "STORE FOLDER"

this is done by going to the tools, options menu and selecting maintenance then the store folder button This will tell you where your mail is currently stored.

At this point I would exit outlook express and go to the stroe location and copy (NOT CUT & PASTE) the contents to the folder you created on your flash drive.

I would then open outlook express and go back to the store folder button and this time click "change"

Now you can point it to the flash drive and folder you created.

It will ask if you are sure and if you click yes it will then tell you to restart outlook express or that the changes will not take effect until you restart.

I would do a full system shut down restart to be sure but it is not always needed.

You can then check that is is indeed using the new folder by opening up outlook express and checking your mail if you get mail then double check it is still set to the flash drive.

You can then repeat the process on the other computer and check again.

As a final check take it home and try again and if all is good you have done what you want.

It may also be prudent to export your address book and email accounts to the flash drive too.

Please do make a backup of the flash drive.

I use a similar method to keep all my email in case of a computer crash that besides a proper backup system to my server so that my *** is fully covered.

I'm unable to open .eml attachment in Windows Vista.


Here's some info: E-mail message saved by Microsoft Outlook or other e-mail program; may also contain an e-mail attachment, or file sent with the message. Note: If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
  3. Click the File Types tab.
  4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
  5. Click Open, then click Edit.
  6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
  7. Click OK twice, then close the window.
EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files; changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.
Hope this helps.
