Importing Mail Accounts

Hi

I am doing a clean reinstall on my PC. I am now copying stuff across from a back-up hard drive to my fresh hard drive.

I use Outlook Express and have been able to import both the messages and address book from the back-up by finding the wab and dbx files on the back-up.

I now want to import the mail accounts that I had previously but am unable to find a flie or directory to import them from.

What/where is the location and file name (type) of the mail accounts so that I can bring them into my new set-up?

Thanks
Graeme

Greetings, Graeme !

If you have not reinstall the Operating System, here is how to export the Account Settings
From the old OE toolbar, select Tools > Accounts > Export.


Best wishes!

Yeah I have done an OS install, I can set up the accounts manually (once I find where I wrote the passwords down - sigh) but was just looking for a smarter way. I was hoping there would be an iaf file somewhere for each of the accounts but doesn't appear so.

Will keep the question open for a day or two to see if anyones else has anything to add.

Thanks
