Time ago I copied a files from a folder where Outlook Express stores mails. Just copied them to another folder on different disk ( just like I was used to do with Outlook *.pst files ). Then I installed MS Outlook and tried to put back old files from OE to Outlook default folder. It did not work. Now I cant see my old files ( even if I try to use OE - I still cant open them) and I cant export or import old files to fresh new and empty MS Outlook. How can I recover these files or how can I load them to MS Outlook

You need to put that Outlook Express file back where it belongs for Outlook Express . Outlook Express doesn't use the same file format as Outlook. After you copy the file back to its original folder location, open Outlook Express and verify that you see your email and/or addresses.

Then open Outlook and import the mail, address, and/or settings from Outlook Express. For email and addresses, click File, Import and Export, Import Internet Mail and Addresses, Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, be sure to confirm the items you're importing. For mail settings, choose Import Internet Mail Settings.

Please let us know if this helps.
