In trying Import, Outlk Exprss simply shuts down
Posted on 2004-08-17
unfortunately, the solutions offered for the following problem did not work:
"I have two computers, one with Outlook installed and the other with Outlook Express installed. I want to move all emails in various folders from Outlook (.pst files?) on the one machine to Outlook express (.dbx files?) on the other."
Installing Outlook on the machine with outlook express is not an option.
On the other machine (XP professional), which has both outlook and outlook express, from OE I have tried importing as follows (according to the second solution offered):
In Outlook express I click File>Import>Messages
In the "Select Program" dialog box I choose Microsoft Outlook and click Next
A "Choose Profile" dialog box appears with "Outlook" already typed in. I click OK and after grinding for a few seconds the whole OE program simply shuts down and disappears.
Can you tell me what is going on?
