Import Outlook Express 6 Mail Into Outlook 2000
Posted on 2007-03-21
I recently switched computers. My old computer had Outlook Express 6, my new computer uses Outlook 2000. I exported my mail folders from Outlook Express, it asked the application that I was exporting to and I used the 'Outlook' profile, which already existed. The export looked like it worked, I saw it going thru each of the existing mail folders. The output of that process was a file called 'Index.Dat'. I put the file on a USB flash drive which I then plugged into the Outlook 2000 machine.
From the menu I specified 'File', 'Import/Export','Import Internet Mail and Addresses'. I then selected 'Outlook Express 4.x,5' and clicked the box to 'Import Mail'. It runs without interuption, never prompting me for a file location. it always imports 1 mail message which is the 'Welcome to Outlook Express 6' message.
How can I import my Outlook Express 6 messages into Outlook 2000?
