I've copied the Outlook Express folder files, within the Identities folder,
over from NT4 to 2000. But only the Sent Items folder shows up. In 2000,
Outlook Express creates a new inbox file, ignoring the one that's there
already, and names that new file "inbox(1).dbx. It also ignores the several
non-default user-created folder files. Again, strangely enough, it accepts
the Sent folder and displays that normally.

This is our store's accountant's email account, so the data in those other
folders is critical.

Thanks!
