Recovering Outlook files into Outlook Express - Help!


A

AmbroseBrennan

My XP failed. I backed up the entire drive to an External Drive. Dell could
not repair my XP so we did a reinstall of XP. It came with Outlook Express.
Now I am trying to restore the outlook files from the external drive to my
new Outlook Express environment (which is working fine with my roadrunner
account - sending and receiving emails). I had about 2000 emails to restore
but I can't find a file on the external drive that has that much. Do I need
to get a copy of Outlook and install that so that I can recover the Outlook
files on my external drive?

Thanks.

Outlook and Outlook Express aren't the same thing. You should be asking in an
Outlook Express newsgroup. Also visit http://www.insideoe.com/ ,
partiocularly http://www.insideoe.com/backup/. Five seconds at Microsoft's
Knowledgebase would also have found this:
