Hi
I've got an old Win2k machine here that's been working perfectly for a long time, however the user recently phoned me up to say all his email had disappeared along with all the short cuts on the desktop.
The machine has added a second user, along side userfoo we now have userfoo.machinename.
what's the best way to deal with this? - can i just copy the data from the old profile to the new one and re set up his pop account?

regards

Spotta

Yes, copy the data from the old profile and re-set up the POP account. It'll be the fastest solution.
