"outlook-express-6" "can't transfer account"
Posted on 2011-05-07
i have a new win7 machine and need to be able to use outlook express in the xp mode.
to do that, i need to import 11 e-mail accounts from my old w2k machine.
i DO have them transferred to the new machine (twice), and when in xpm i CAN access the folder the accounts are stored in.
and oe6 DOES "seem to" import them from the folder (tools/accounts/import) into the 'internet accounts" folder.
BUT after importing them, only half of them show up in the "folders pane" of oe6.
it doesn't matter whether i delete and manually recreate the accounts that aren't showing up in the folders pane - oe6/xpm won't let me create or use these accounts.
I don't get it. the old w2k machne is still running and all the accounts work fine there, but half won't work in oe6/xp mode???
