PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP Home
Problem Application Name & Version:Outlook Express v6.0
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Clone
Error Messages: None


Following tipsandtricks message a copy of file Atkins.dbx (395KB) was moved from one computer to another. This was down in Docs and settings ... Microsoft\Outlook Express. Well, the folder is not showing up in the new computer. Could this be caused by the User Name not the same on both computers? Or what.

On the new pc...open your email client.
Goto FILES>IMPORT>MESSAGES....point to where you installed the folder.

Let us know if that worked.

I already tried import. Error message says the file could not be found or Outlook Express may have the file opened. But import is not the process the tips and tricks write up gives, check it out.

Sorry compcon1 but I don't see anything in TIPS/TRICKS about transferring Outlook Express messages...I could be blind and just not seeing it..Shocked
Post the link to the Tip here for me...thx...Grin

I really can't see the fact that each PC have different User Names being the problem but someone please correct me if I'm wrong..Wink
Is the file from an earlier version of Outlook Express?
Try saving the file to a Floppy...then import the file from the Floppy.

Go to http://www.helpwithpcs.com/tipsandtricks/outlook-express-backup-messages.htm and it says on page 3 to copy the files from the message folder (OE file location) and then restore messages again to the new computer's message folder.

I repair computers full time for a living. Saving OE files for a computer that has to be wiped clean has always been a problem for me. Now with the help of this tips and tricks I expect to do a better job. This last weekend someone visiting in town came in with a Thinkpad computer that looked corrupted. I immediately took out the HD and Ghosted an image to a server. Then putting the Thinkpad drive back in, I found that the problem was the physical drive because it failed to work at all. I put in a new hard drive and returned the computer and the old hard drive to the owner who went home again after Thanksgiving. I promised to pull off OE v6.0 files from the image, the only thing they hadn't backed up.

My goal is to test the inbox file I recovered from the image to see if it will go into my server's Outlook Express.
