    Hello,

    We want to import our emails and folders from our old computer which uses Outlook Express 5 to Outlook Express 6 (our new computer that uses Windows XP). The problem is when I click on import, I get the wizard which prompts me to click on the 'old email program'. There is Outlook Express 4 and Outlook Express 6...no 5 to choose!!!! So how do I import these files!!

    Please help!

    Thanks...

    Melissa

    Hi Melissa, Welcome to TSG! :) First, make sure you can view hidden files and folders and do a search for your OE5 .dbx files. Find > *.dbx
    Remember the location!

    Then to import from OE5 into OE6, click
    File > Import > Messages > OE6, then select "Import from an OE6 store directory" and Browse to the folder containing the OE5 *.dbx files. Make sure they are not set to 'read only'.
