Outlook Express folders & messages lost during upgrade from 98 to XP Pro

Outlook Express folders & messages lost during upgrade from 98 to XP Pro

Post by Jeff Wilso » Mon, 27 Oct 2003 00:53:36


I just upgraded from 98 to XP Pro. When I opened Outlook
Express, all old folders and files were missing. I
located the Identities Folders and imported the messages
and folders, but when done some folders and messages are
missing. Some reported errors during import and some
missing folders and messages did not have any error
messages associated with them.

Is there a location where the original undisturbed
messages and folders are saved during the upgrade? If so,
where is it and how can I transfer the old folders and
messages into the proper identity.

Thanks,

Jeff
