I've got the Identities folder from an old system - wanting to transfer it into a new system under OL2003.

What are the steps I need to accomplish this?

Greetings, sirbounty !

Copy the Identities with the email store folder to the new system. In Outlook, go to File > Import and Export > Import Internet Mail and addresses > Next > Outlook Express > Import Mail > Next > Finish.

Hi war1 - I hadn't properly exported them from the prior OE, so I assume that was the hangup.
I've tried that route now, but following the instructions above only 'imported' the 1 "Welcome to" email...
Looking at the link now...

Sirbounty,

Sounds like you imported the email from the new system Outlook Express.  You need to import the emails from the old system Outlook Express identities subfolder, the stored emails.

Thanx for the help - I was multi-tasking trying to get out of there and didn't have all my wits about me.
Only one monitor between the two systems, one with SATA only, the older one IDE - rough data transfer! :^)
