Recover old emails

  tenroom 13:18 18 Apr 05

OK ! Got the new Dell PC. Thing is, all my old emails and address book are on the old hard disk which I've copied into a dedicated new folder on the NEW hard drive.

My problem is that when I click on the .dbx file extension, the computer says it can't find the application that created them . . . even though I've got Outlook on the new PC.

I desperately need these old emails. Does anyone know of a way to import them into the new PC ?

In Outlook you need to go to File>Import & Export. I suggest before you do so you rename the files to "Old" e.g. OldInbox, OldReadmail, Old(Filename) etc then you will have a clear file system up to the transfer date.

Did you get your address book as well. And what about your favourites? Glad to help - a common problem but this is what the forum is all about!

Post back if you need some more help.
