Outlook Express 5 from OE4
Posted on 1999-07-03
I recently had to reformat my c: drive, so I deleted IE4, OE4 and everything else. I guessed I might want my old e-mails, so zipped them up and saved on a separate drive. I have since installed Win 98, IE5 and OE5 and would like OE5 to be able to read my old inbox, sent items etc. I have unzipped everything back to the OE5 area in Windows\Application data\ etc. but OE5 won't recognise them directly and won't import them either (I followed the procedure in Help). I have tried unzipping to a separate temporary directory and trying to read or import from there, but no luck either. OE5 tells me there are no files to import in that location or they are already in use by another program (which they aren't). Any suggestions?
