Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

1 Answer

Hi, I need to Import Outlook Express Emails (that were on another PC - and the Maintenance / Store location from express has been backed up to an external hard drive) and import the mail and contacts into Outlook 2007. There doesn't appear to be an option to do this (i.e. browse and specify where the files are!) Any help would be appreciated.. Brendan

How do I get my emails from another computer


If you are using outlook express...open outlook express on the old machine, click tools->Options->click on the "Maintenance Tab"-->then click "Store Folder". A box will pop up with the location where your emails are stored. Select the location and copy it. Then open up "My Computer" and paste that location in the address bar and hit enter. From there you can select the emails that you want. Copy those to a flash drive or similar device and paste them to that device. On your new computer, open up your mail client and import the emails from the device location. If you need help post back or email me @ dpinkston@clearwave.com

Out Look Express


Outlook and Outlook Express are not the same program, and they are not actually even close to using the same programming.

You cannot import Outlook files into Outlook Express. You can import both into Outlook.

Select File->Import and Export, and then choose "Import from another program or file" then choose either PST file for Outlook or Outlook Express. Select the defaults from then on and browse to where you saved the emails. If you saved the emails correctly it should import them.
