Hi Rosanna,

If you have access to the other computer you can go to the Outlook Express (OE) menu - under Tools (I think) you will find the accounts option,

Open that and select your email acount and then select modify / Edit depends on your version.

Copy down the settings like pop3 server address and SMTP, your username and password and

then enter those details on the new computer's OE accounts section click on Add New Email Account

If you do not have access then try this.

Go to OE Tools->Accounts (may be under different menu)

Click add new Account
Enter the details it asks for
pop3 and SMTP servers are usually standardised
So if your email address is rosanna@here.com
pop3 will either be mail@here.com or pop3@here.com
the SMTP server will either be mail@here.com
or smtp@here.com

If you are connecting to hotmail then you will not get access to your email via OE anymore - you need to use Windows Live Mail or MS Outlook with the Outlook Mail Connector - available from MS.

Message recall


Outlook Express 6 was intended as a way to download your mail and view it locally on the computer its used on. In most cases mail accessed with Outlook Express was done so using POP account settings, resulting in the mail being deleted off the main mail server (in your case, verizon) and leaving only the copy of that email sitting on your computer in Outlook Express.
Of course if you were using more customized mail settings, its possible to keep the mail from being deleted from the server and have access to it from other computers or being logging into your mail account through a web browser like Firefox or Chrome, etc.
So to answer your question... If the email still exists on the server (verizon) then yes it can be done. But then accessing your account via the web would be far easier than doing it with Outlook Express.
On the other hand, if the email cannot be seen on your verizon account online, then accessing it with Outlook Express will not be possible. If its not there, its not there.

If the email physically exists on your computer in Outlook Express, then regardless of the account it was received through, it should still be there. If you changed your computer logon information, you might have inadvertently switched identities, resulting in your mail appearing to be gone. It could still be safe and sound, but hiding under another mail identity. You can find this by looking in your menu in Outlook Express for switching identities. If you see more than one identity available, switch to another and look for your mail.


I hope this helps.

I am trying to export my messages from Outlook


I dunno but you might be better off just copying the outlook express data files from one computer to the next instead of trying to export.

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.
