    First of all, hi everyone I'm new to the boards =) I hope to get some help AND provide help!

    Here's my problem:

    I'm trying to export my mails from Outlook Express 6.0 but it says that I should set OE6 as my default email and then It says that an error accoured while initializing MAPI...
    I tried to change OE6 to be my default mailing problam but it doesn't save the change, every time I close it, it changes to non-default again...

    I did search on this topic and found a similar thread here:

    I followed the tips you people gave there to no avail!

    Then I noticed the last topic with a solution, saying I should rename my MApi32.dll and mapi32.bak files in my system and system32 folders... but I have only mapi32.dll file (no bak file) and only in system folder (there is no mapi file in system32 folder). But there are some other mapi files such as: Mapiform.vbx, Mapisrvr.exe, mapistub.dll etc. etc.

    I did try to change the name of mapi32.dll file and then setting OE6 as my default mailing program but it didn't help... maybe I should try to rename all mapi files?

    Also, if there's no other solution, is it ok if I simply copy the folder where the mails are:
    C:\WINDOWS\application data\Identities\{BAA29280-95FD-11D7-BD8F-DDC1C387EA54}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\

    and will I be able to import it later?

    Thanks in advance :)
