Restoring Outlook Express messages

  davidk 23:15 10 Nov 05

I have installed a new HD running Win98Se with OE6. My old hard drive is now the secondary drive and I want to transfer the messages in my old HD to the new hard drive. I have found the *dbx files but I cannot get the transfer wizard to work. It finds the whole archive in Windows\applicationdata.......\ but it will not recognise or transfwer the individual boxes. Where am I going wrong?

Make sure they aren't set to Read Only.

In OE go to File Import - and run the Import Wizard. When browsing to the old files only browse to the folder that contains them - not to the .dbx files themselves.
