Converting Outlook Express to Outlook loses Reply and forward indicators?
Posted on 2014-03-02
With everyone panicking about Microsoft discontinuing support for Windows XP in April, I have had a flurry of activity setting up new computer for clients. Over the years, I have converted OE to Outlook and other email clients many, many times and have never noticed that when you import OE mail into Outlook, the flags indicating that you have replied or have forwarded an email do not come across. Has anyone else run into this problem and has anyone found a solution?
I have found that Thunderbird will import OE just fine and so will Windows Live Mail but I really would like to be able to import into Outlook.
If Microsoft wants people to upgrade to their newest operating systems, I cannot understand why they don't make the upgrade process a little easier? The fact that Outlook 2013 will not even import OE mail is nuts. It is crazy that you have to first import it into something else and then import into 2013 is just ridiculous.
