Export / Import outlook express messages to another system
Posted on 2004-09-26
I have a XP (SP 2) desktop that have my outlook express emails and I want to transfer the email messages to my new XP laptop.
The problem is when I do:
1. Export Messages ("This will export messages from outlook express to microsoft outlook or microsoft exchange")
2. Choose profile, default is "Outlook".
3. Export messages ("Select the mail folders you want to export from outlook express")
4. I select all folders.
5. Export messages completes.
I thought the messages are stored in .dbx files, but when I display the details of these files the date / time stamp is not today's date and are old email files.
My question is... where does the "export" write the files?
