This seems harder than it should be. Bought a new laptop for a user, and he wants to move his mail and folders in Outlook Express 5 on the old machine to OE5 on the new machine. I thought he could just move C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Mail folders to the new machine, but the Identities folder is tripping us up. Not quite sure how to deal with that. I didn't get a chance to look at the folders before he left today, but it seems that the new machine has Identities folders, but the old one doesn't. He has .idx and .mbx files, but no .dbx files, if I remember correctly. I may be able to provide more info tomorrow (Friday, US Pacific Time), but until then -- any ideas?
