Hi all,

I have finally had it with this Vista product.

I would like to save my IE7 settings/favorites, my firefox settings/favorites, and all my Windows Mail and Windows Contacts to transfer to XP.

Will XP Outlook Express be able to import Vista Mail? How about the Contacts?

If I use Express Assist 9 trial to backup my stuff, will I able to import the backup to an Xp machine?



Thanks,

Heeter

Yes Heeter
I have tested for you on Express Assist 9 .
Just load Express Assist in XP and point it to the latest Back up for Vista, and you can get back the latest copies of Windows mail , contacts , IE and Firefox Favorites and bookmarks and other settings.

Thanks Tweakfiend,

but will it intergrate Vista Mail/Contacts/settings with XP Outlook Mail/Contacts/settings?

I don't want to lose all my mail going back to XP.

Thanks

Sorry Heeter
On further investigation it would be better only to us EA9 to move messages back and forwards ( not message folders ) and settings
For copying contacts Vista to XP .....choose to export from Windows Mail as "v cards" (.vcf format ) to a nominated folder and you can then import to XP Outlook Express 6 address book in this format.
You will see a complete list of individual contacts so you can import all or just some of these contacts
For copying contacts XP to Vista ... the address book exported from OE6 can be easily imported in that same format into Windows Mail.

Awesome, Thanks, will get on this right away, Thanks again.

The faster this machine gets back to XP, the better this network will be.

Well if it works good for him that means its impossible that it does not work right for you ...see it has to be your fault ..


I think calling someone a noobie because there are problems in a new os is a little of the mark ...

Or its possible some people have a certain combination of hardware/drivers that don't play well together and because of that there experience has been less than stellar. Either way, name calling based ones opinion of a product is far from productive. Vista has issues, thats undeniable. Some people have been lucky enough to avoid those issues, others have not.

I had issues too, that was not directed at you. It was just a general statement.

I think you guys took his comment too seriously. (I am sure that) He didn't mean any harm by it. Let's get back on topic. Thank you.
