  1. Ok, I'm trying to switch some e-mail files from my Girlfriend's harddrive to the new hard drive. I did a complete new install with her new home built system. What I'm trying to do is move the outlook express files that contain address, inbox, deleted files, and sent files to her new outlook express on the new computer. I have done this before on "ME" but I can't seem to find where they are.

    Thanks in Advance everyone

    Cheers
    Mike

    I think with the address book you have to use import/export which maybe is under 'file'.

    As for the others they are located in the 'store folder'. Tools/options/maintenance. Something like that. Going from memory here. :D
     
  3. Hey Buddy. I can't seem to find these files.. Can you direct me to them?

    Thanks again :)

    Cheers

    Open outlook express. Go to tools/options/maintenance/store folder. (will tell you where the files are stored.)

    The other is file/import or file/export.
