Is there a way to import mail from Outlook Express into Outlook and get all the folders the user set up in OE?? Maybe I'm missing an option setting when I do an import, but it always seems to grab the email, but leave the folders behind.

Hi NedChaney

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Are you Importing into Outlook?

Try Exporting your messages from Outlook Express into Outlook instead.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

Open Microsoft Outlook with the Profile you want the messages Exported into.

Open Outlook Express to the Identity you want to Export,
File > Export > Messages
You should also get the option to pick and choose which folders from Outlook Express are Exported into Outlook.

What happens if you try it that way?
