This is driving me nuts...

I have 2 clients with Outlook Express importing into Outlook 2007 on Win 7 comptuers...

Client # 1...on his old XP machine, Outlook 2007 was installed but not used...so I set it up to POP from Yahoo...it created a pst files...tested and it is sending and recieving email...

He was using  OE...So from his XP machine in Outlook 2007 I imported his OE...it created a 2ed pst file...
I moved the 2ed pst file to the Win 7 machine...opened Outlook 2007 and opened the 2ed PST file...
I then dragged and dropped the new folders from the OE import into the original pst file...
Removed the 2ed PST file and everything is working fine...



Client # 2...old XP machine is dead...so I slaved the HD and copied the Outlook Express folder to a USB drive...plugged it into MY XP machine with Outlook 2007...

Opened OE and in Maintenance foler, changed the location to the USB drive...email opens up ok...

Closed OE then opened MY Outlook 2007...I have an  existing working PST file...
I imported all the clients OE mail into MY 2007...
Worked fine EXCEPT...it imported all of Clients email INTO MY PST FILE...
It did NOT create another PST file, which I was expecting...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
So...how can I import client # 2 OE email into MY 2007 so I can grab the PST file and put it on the clients machine...???
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here are some of the problems...
Win 7 does not have OE...
When you import from OE to 2007, you cannot point to where the OE files are located...
It finds the files based on the current location of the operating OE...so this pretty
much means you have to do the conversion on an XP machine...

Any suggestions appreciated...

Add an additional PST to your outlook 2007 profile and drag and drop your OE data to this new PST.
