Unfortunate, as far as I know, one cannot import account iformation into
OL2002(XP) or 2003, as one could with previous versions. Recreated by hand is
the only answer left so far.

Hello Alphons

There is a way, verry unconfortable but it works....

But there is a simple solution to export import the accounts...
Export in OL2000
copy iaf files to new computer with WinXP and OL2003

import the files with Outlook Express (on WinXP computer with OL2003)
->OL2003 imports them automatically from OE the accounts .....

What in the hell is such a behaviour !!!!!!!!!

What designer has such ideas....?????

it is not possible to do it comlicater in any way .....

but anyway thanks and regards remo

Remo,
Thanks for the info... I already have the *.iaf files, so importing them
into OE and letting them be "inherited" by OL3 should be easier than
recreating six e-mail accounts; I guess for one or two accts it would be
easier by hand. I had stopped using OE so long ago--never opened once in this
system of 3 yrs-- that I never even phathomed the idea.

Word of caution: for those who have older *.iaf files, it has happened to me
that my ISP has changed the POP and/or SMTP address(es); be sure to verify
all info once acct is imported.

Wich one?
Is it better than OE?

While I find OE fairly decent, XNews and Forte Agent are also good. Forte
Agent has built-in yEnc decoding. You can get a yEnc proxy for Outlook
Express, but I think that's unnecessarily complicated.
