A little more information. What email program are you using Outlook express? Outlook?

If you are using outlook express open it. go to File / Import / Messages.

select the type of program the emails are in when you saved them to the external harddrive.
click next select import mail from OE6 or whichever you had from above. and click ok.  then click browse. and find the drive the email was saved on. then click the folder you have the emails saved in. and click ok. ( it may be easier to save the email folder to your desktop of your computer and just browse to your desktop).

click next select your folder you want the emails to go to and finish the emails will be imported

    Do you still have Outlook on your computer?

    Also when you opened the properties ans changed to outlook express you did not change the files you only changed the program to open with. if you have Outlook on your computer all you need to do is follow the last posting to fix the problem.

What is the quickest method to backup all email clients on mac?


Hello Trey,

You can easily backup one or more mailboxes by simply exporting them, to do so, select one or more mailboxes, then select:

Mailbox > Export Mailbox, select or create a new folder as your save location, and it will then be saved as a ¨.mbox¨ file. Every time you export it doesn't overwrite, but instead, creates a new file.

To import the backup, select: File > Import Mailboxes, the choose the file you want to import.

This can be used to import from other email clients and not just the Mai application.

You can also use third party tools to backup email database.One of the best-known tools for email backup for mac is Mail Backup X. Have a look at its features here:

Open Outlook, click on file in the top left hand side. Select Import and export. Now select export to a file and click next. Now select the file type you want save as (I mainly use a pst file and its the most common) and click next.

You can back up all of your emails this way just change the name of the file from backup to Inbox etc.

I have a sandisk cruzer micro 512 MB. how do i back up my files to it? thx.


Assuming you use a PC not a Mac and by files you mean things like documents on your computer or emails in MS Outlook.

Connect USB to Computer using a USB Port.

For documents:
  1. Highlight all the files that you want to back up (Holding Ctrl and Clicking)
    (NOTE: MAX of about 500MB in total size)
  2. Press Ctrl and C (or Right Click on a selected file and choose Copy)
  3. Click Start
  4. Click My Computer
  5. Find the USB Drive (usually the E: drive or higher (eg. F:, G:, H:, etc.)) and double click it's icon.
  6. Press Ctrl and V (or Right Click in white area and choose Paste)
  7. Selected Files will appear on USB Drive
  8. Repeat

For Email:
Find the Drive's Name in My Computer (Click Start --> My Computer --> Find Drive (usually e:))

If you want to back up only some of your Outlook data, you can create a new backup .pst file of only the data that you want to save. This is also known as exporting .pst file data. For example, you might want to use this section if you have important information in only some folders and you have other, less important items in much larger folders. You can export only the important folders or contacts and omit folders like Sent Mail.

Follow these steps to export a specific folder:
  1. Open Outlook.
  2. On the File menu, click Import And Export. If the menu item is not available, hover your pointer over the chevrons at the bottom of the menu, and then click Import and Export.
  3. Click Export To File, and then click Next.
  4. Click Personal Folder File (.pst) , and then click Next.
  5. Click the folder that you want to export the .pst file to, and then click Next.
  6. Click Browse, and then select the location where you want the new .pst file to be saved.
  7. In the File Name box, , type the name that you want to use for the new .pst file, and then click OK.
  8. Click Finish.


Files should now be backed up to USB

How do you down load email addresses from your computer, to install on a new computer?


I have put details of copying over addresses and the emails for both Outlook express and Outlook.Hope this helps.

Outlook Express
In Outlook Express, select File --> Export and select Address book. I recommend that you use a comma-separated values (CSV) format as it's more portable and can be recovered if something happens since it's just a basic text file. Copy that onto the new computer, choose File --> Import, and select the CSV file. That should do it!
Backing up email is more difficult, however.
Here's the basic process in Outlook Express: Under Tools --> Options, click the "maintenance" tab. This will tell you where your email is stored. Now copy all of those files onto your new computer (if you make a CDROM you'll have a nice permanent backup too) and then put them in the exact same folder on the new system (while you aren't running Outlook Express). Restart the app and you should have all your mailboxes intact.
Outlook does have an appropriate archive/restore function too, if you want to try that instead. Under File, select Import/Export. Select "export to a file," then select the mailbox that you want to back up. If your mailboxes are like mine, this will produce a fairly large file, depending on the size of your mailbox. Copy these exported files onto the new computer, then use File --> Import/Export --> Import from a file and you should have the mailboxes on your new system.
Outlook
You'll have to export the Address Book from the computer then import it into Outlook on the new computer
1) On your desktop click File --> Export --> Address Book
2) Select the Comma Seperated Values (Windows) as your output format
3) Select the folder you want to export - in this case Contacts
4) Type a name for your file - example: addresses
5) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Export then click Finish
This is the important part: You'll need to copy or save the file to a flash drive or floppy. Alternatively, you can email the file to yourself or burn on CD if you don't have a floppy or flash drive available. Either way the file needs to be transfered to your new laptop.
1) On your laptop open Outlook and click File --> Import --> Import from another file or program (this varies depending on your version of Outlook)
2) Select Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - the same option you selected when you exported
3) Click Browse to retrieve the file you exported
4) Choose either replace, not to duplicate or duplicate under the options menu
5) Select destination folder - since this is your address book you would click Contacts
6) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Import then click Finish

Every time i open outlook 2007 a initializing window opens and start configuring office enterprise, this also occurs when sending email or retrieving email


Okay, I will need you to completely un-install Office 2007 Enterprise, restart your computer and reinstall it, then restart it again.
***WARNING*** You MUST Backup your e-mail data, the un-install process can occasionally delete data. To back it up go to file, Import/Export and export to a Personal File Folder (.pst) and save it to your desktop!!!
Once that is done go to import and export and import the .pst file you made earlier, then see if it works, if it does not tell me and I will begin more advanced troubleshooting Technique's, also if you need any instructions, or need more specific instructions, I will see what I can do in order to assist you better.
