Hello.

There is a problem, so old computer crashes and we rescue outlook express files. Now we copy files to new computer, and we want all outlook express mails to new outlook 2010, how we can do it?

Thanks

In Outlook 2010, select File > Open > Import.   When the Import and Export Wizard appears, select Import Internet Mail and Addresses.  This will import email from Outlook Express (see image).

I see what you mean.  It doesn't ask for the data files/folder.  You can install Windows Live Mail (http://get.live.com).  Then select File > Import > Messages > Microsoft Outlook Express 6 > Next.  Browse for the location of the Outlook 6 messages.  Windows Live Mail will now have the Outlook 6 email.  You can use Windows Live Mail to reference the messages in Outlook 6.  Or you can export from Windows Live Mail to Outlook via http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980534.

Alternatively, you can install Outlook Express 6 and Outlook on a Windows XP machine (presuming there is such machine or virtual machine available) and use Outlook 2010 to import Outlook Express email directly.
