    I used the import feature to import messages, email
    folders, and addresses from Outlook Express to Outlook.
    The addresses and folders imported. The email did not. In
    other words the folders in Outlook are still empty.

    Any suggestions?

    The export from OUtlook Express works smoothly. I have
    tried selecting "All" and see the % bar run as the 46
    messages export. (I also tried exporting just one folder,
    too).

    Then, I switch to Outlook, click File>import and export. I
    select the last option "Internet Mail and Addresses". Then
    I click only the Internet Mail radio button (because the
    addresses imported correctly). When I click OK, the
    process ends abruptly with the box showing "0 of 0
    messages imported".
