    how do I copy my Outlook Express 5.5 messages?
    By drclaw October 31, 2000, 07:45 PM

    I just put together a new computer and I want to get my email set up again. I would like to have all my old messages that are on my old drive.

    What do I need to copy so that all my identities and messages are as they were on my old computer?

    Thanks

    tools; account; export for the identity

    the only way I was able to do this was customize the tool bar and save as every single message; next; save as; next.....

    Go to Tools | Options | Maintenance tab under each of your Identities to find out the directory under which it is stored. Make a note of which Identity goes with which directory. Grab the whole group of directories, and save them to external media or blow them over network connection to get them onto the new computer. (DON'T put them in the directory structures created by for Outlook Express on the new system. Just make a temporary directory off the drive root, and place the {xxxxxxx...} directories in there. Open OE on the new machine, create the first Identity and choose to open OE in that new Identity. File | Import | Messages, choose Microsoft Outlook Express 5 and click Next, choose "Import mail from an OE5 store directory" radio button and hit the OK button, browse to the temporary {xxxxx....} directory that corresponds to the first identity you created, and follow the few remaining directions in the wizard. Then do each of the other Identities in the same manner. After you're sure you have all of your Identities and message bases working on OE, you can blow away the temporary directories from which you imported the data.

    Hope this helps.

    Pretty cool; I never thought to grab the whole directory under the scenes.
    I'll be sure to use this on my next install.

    Yes, it works pretty well. I actually don't use the Identities function for their intended purpose. I use them as archives, using the date range they cover as the names for the Identities. That works better than the lame archiving function built into OE5 that doesn't let you read the contents of archived message bases until you import them. Doh!

    Have fun!

    Jim
