i used to use outlook express 6.0. to back up emails id just drag-drop them to a folder. there i would have *.eml files i could click and open. i am playing with outlook xp now. is there any way to get those *.emls into my inbox from that folder? ive tried searching but all i come up with is ways to do it using pst (personal folder/file something) thanks for any help.

Check out File> Import & Export> Import Internet mail and Addresses, this will allow you to import mail into your PST system

thanks. i did try Import/Export, but when i go where you told me (i mail and addy ) it will import from eudora, netscape, oe, and netscape. my mail isnt in any of those, theyre just in a folder. i can get them back into oe to export them in a pst. thanks for the response anyway tho.

Your email address you should export into whats called a CSV (comma separated value) file. After you save it somewhere on your hard drive you can import it into almost any program. Plus you have a backup now of your email addys and can manipulate them like in Excel.
You can import the email the way you tried before just drag over the emails in the inbox and you should be fine.

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
