Outlook Express 6. Cannot re-import Emails

  PhiltheFragger 07:07 30 Jun 03

Before reformatting Hdd, I exported all emails and folders to a folder in My Docs and then put the whole of my docs onto CD as a backup.

Now Having reinstalled XP I cannot get Outlook Express to import the info either from My Docs or CD even though I browse the correct path and you can see the folders and items if you open the relevant directory.

What am I missing?

Instead of importing from the CD try Copy and Paste.

Would you do that individually or can you do the whole lot in one go.

Any idea why the import Wizard cant do it?

If the email folders are on a CDR or CDRW they will be marked as 'read only'. Make a copy to your desktop and then select properties by right clicking with the mouse. Take the tick out of 'read only' and try again.
