    I just reinstalled windows 98, and I can't seem to be able to import my old email messages into outlook express. I had saved the messages in a folder on my other hard drive (both .mbx folders, "in," and "out," over 5mb's of them.) I can't get them to import- any ideas?

    Your file is missing.
    It may have been important.
    But now it is gone.

    What version of OE are you trying to import from/to?

    Have you tried the Import option from the OE File Menu?

    What errors are you getting if any?

    OE 4.x uses *.MBX and *.IDX files for the mail boxes (OE 5.x uses *.DBX). Did you save the IDX files also?

    Sorry to post so many questions, but the answer to these questions will help us resolve your issue quicker.
