How do I get my old voluminous email from Outlook Express 4 into Outlook
Express 6 or Outlook XP so I can read it again?
My ISP's helpline tells me that it is impossible.
My old Windows '95 PC has Microsoft Outlook Express version 4 (actually
My new PC running under Windows XP for Home has Outlook Express version 6
and Outlook (which came with Microsoft Office XP).
I need to get all of my old email messages from Express 4 to either Express
6 or to Outlook and to get a small number of messages (erroneously
downloaded into Express 6) from Express 6 to Outlook.
I have copied all of my email messages from the old machine to the new but
cannot find any way of importing them into either Outlook Express 6 or
My version of Outlook does not have an import from Express 6: only Express
4.x and 5.x are mentioned. If I use it for Express 6, it tells me that the
the right number of messages have been successfully imported but they
haven't. If I try to import the copied Express 4 messages, it just tries
to load the Express 6 ones again, hardly surprising as it never asks for an
If I try to import into Express 6, it prompts for a pathname and when I type
the pathname where the copied Express 4 email folders are located, it says
there are no email messages there or that there may be another program
trying to access them which I should close (there isn't).
If, on the old PC, I use the export facility in Express 4, it simply says it
is exporting and doesn't tell me at the end what it has done with them. If
I use 'Find' to search for files created or modified today, I cannot see any
obvious export file.
I cannot load Express 4 on the new PC from my Freeserve disk (as it
recognises that Express 6 is installed already) and I cannot load Express 6
or Outlook on the old PC as it is only Windows 95.
