Transfer address book/folders to Outlook Express 6 from Outlook Express 5?

Post by Pete » Thu, 09 Oct 2003 23:00:49


How can I get the address book and local folders from
Outlook Express 5 to newly installed Outlook Express 6?

Formerly had Windows 95 and Outlook Express 5 (or 5.5.)
Hard drive was reformatted using Windows 95. Then
upgraded to Windows 98. Before reformat, backed up
Outlook Express 5 (or 5.5) onto an Iomega Zip drive. Can
I just drag the old Outlook Express 5 folder and put
whatever files had copied to the Zip drive into the
Outlook Express 6 folder-without doing any harm? Will it
work?

What else might I be able to do.

(Note: When the new Outlook Express 6 was just installed,
the first time it was used, I got a message saying that it
had identified older Outlook Express files and did I want
to move them to Outlook Express 6. I checked do it in the
future. Cannot now find the command to do this. How do I
locate it?)

Please post replies to this site. Pleae do not reply by e
mail. Thank you

I think you backed up the wrong stuff. You needed to back up the dbx files
and the wab files.
