JSL posted this question on Oct 30, 2004 but it doesn't look like there was any practical solution. So here it is again:

I am trying to transfer Netscape 7.1 emails from my old desktop WIN98 to my new desktop WINXP. I found the directories were emails are stored on the old computor: Inbox.sbd and Sent.sbd. In those directories, there are some files which correspond to my sub-folders of my Inbox and Sent folders except there are 2 files per sub-folders: for my supplier folder, there is a Supplier file (no extension?) AND a Supplier.MSF.

I tried copying those files on a CD and tried to grab them from my new computor with Netscape 7.1 and Outlook Express but with no success.

Why is it so difficult to transfer emails from an old system to a new? Isn't it something that everybody does when changing computor?

Next step would be to connect both computors with a local network but I doubt that the new computor will find the emails on the old computor.

Any ideas anyone?

Hi Tammy,

Thanks a million. IT WORKED!!! Took me a while to find the directory in the new computor because Application Data was hidden. Once I found it, I copied all the files as directed in the link, restarted Netscape and all my emails were there!

Sure hope they are going to make this easier in the future. Do you know if it's easier with Outlook Express. I might consider changing if it's the case.

Again...thank you.

I personally do not use Outlook Express, it is still a very vulnerable program in my book, along with IE. I use Microsoft Outlook. So sorry I can't answer if it's easier.
But glad you got your problem resolved Grin
