I exported my old messages but vista won't recognize or open the file, I guess it's a differant format

is there a program that will open these messages or do I have to use an xp box.

Like lord said. You will need to use outlook to import them. At which point you can export them again to a different file to import into windows mail if you like.

now to find a free copy of outlook to run on vista

very surprising vista mail doesn't come with a tool to reformat an exported file from outlook

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
