Have just moved to new computer which has windows mail.
Successfully imported my address book & email accounts but having trouble with the folders.
Changed the store folder copied old folder dbx & pasted into current one but folders not there.
I had lots of folders set up in the inbox of my old machine so that mails from different people went to different folders.
Do I now have to phyiscally set all of them up in WM.?

Also had message rules defined to moth incoming mails to their appropriate folders.
How to I transport them from old machine to new one.

In Windows Mail just click File - Import - Outlook Express 6 and follow wizard - it will import all or some of the folders as you wish.

Apologies - that was if Windows Mail and OE were on the same PC

Have copied all the dbx files from old machine on to usb stick

Old machine playing up so having difficulty getting stuff off it.
