Hi All,

I want to import the message from outlook express 6 using Windows XP to
Microsoft Outlook 2003 using Windows Vista.

Can anybody know how to do it?

I did copy the outlook folder from Windows XP n paste it at Vista. Then open
the Microsoft Outlook n try to import it. It fail.

Any suggestion?

Thanks/Best Regrads,
Wong

Posted fairly often - try this.

You can't do what you want directly.

First of all you need to do this:
Copy ALL the mail files from OE (including the one called Folders.dbx) and
paste them into a folder you have created on your new machine, to which you
have read/write permissions. A folder within your Documents folder would
seem to be the best place.
Then in Windows Mail, do File-Import-Messages, highlight Microsoft Outlook
Express, and click next.
Make sure that "Import from an OE6 Store directory is checked, (that's why
you need to copy the folders.dbx file, because that tells WM the folder is
an OE message store) and click on OK. Browse to the folder you created..

When that has been completed correctly, you then need to export your emails
FROM Windows Mail to Outlook.
