Hi. I had to replace my HD. In the process, I am having to import my Outlook Express 6 Folders, Address Book and Accounts. The place I am importing them from is a slave drive that, as far as I know, had everything sent to it before the Master HD was replaced.

The Folders and the Address Book were found and Imported. Pretty easy as finding *.wab and *.dbx. The problem is that I can't find where the Mail Accounts are so that I can import them.

It would save me a lot of headache to be able to import them instead of trying to remember what they all were.

Thanks, Steve-x8086

No that didn't help - I had already done that. It says that nothing can be found. Somewhere I thought that I heard that the Mail Accounts were not stored like wab and dbx but, for Outlook Express, were imbedded in the Registry.

Perhaps when the bad drive was duplicated to the slave drive, the registry doesn't move. I have since contacted my ISP and reentered the Mail Accounts.

Still, this is a problem that should be solved or answered.

Thanks, Steve-x8086
