Re: outlook express

Ok, so you imported your mail to outlook. Then you didn't like the program, so you exported the mail out of outlook. I am assuming you used outlooks export feature, found under the file menu on the top. When you hit export you get the option to name the export file, choose where you want it saved, and choose what type of export file you want to make. Outlook can export a file into many different file types that many different e-mail clients can use. That being said, if you are using the web based comcast e-mail there isn't a way for you to import e-mail into it. Depending on how you set up the outlook account it may have been storing a copy of all the mail it downloaded in both outlook and on the web site based e-mail. As I said, this is entirely based on the settings you selected, if you told it to delete the mail from the server when outlook retrieved it then you're out of luck there. Website based (POP) e-mail accounts are limited in functionality, but tend to be designed for the basic end user in mind. So you're going to lack a lot of the features an actual program like outlook would give you. Peter
