    Hi

    I am trying to import Outlook Express 6 .IAF files containing my email account details to Outlook 2003. I can export the files to a floppy ok, but when try to import the files through the Import Wizard all I receive is the message 'No internet accounts were found to import'. There is no option to specify a place to search for the files and I have tried copying the files to the Outlook directory but that doesn't work. Can anyone tell me where I should place the files so Outlook can load them?

    IAF files from Outlook Express are only compatible with Outlook up to 2000. They do not work with Outlook 2003.
    If you don't want to re-enter the info manually then you'll need to import the account files back into Outlook Express and then from Outlook, import the account details from Outlook Express.

    Thanks. I have managed to transfer the acoounts to Outlook 2000, but I can only export from 2000 to .IAF files. As I have built myself a new PC with Outlook 2003 and I had hoped to automate the transfer process, but it appears I will just have to complete the task manually.
