I really hope that you can help me. I used to subscribe to att.net and saved a folder entitled "keep" in which I put all of the e-mails I received that related to the tragic death of my little brother. When I switched to cox.net I forwarded the folder en masse to my new e-mail address. The forwarded folder opens with all of the highlighted e-mail addresses and topics just as I wanted it to, but when I click on one of the links to open the email it directs me to my old att.net login site. Of course, I can no longer log in because I am no longer a member. Shouldn't I be able to find these e-mails on my harddrive somewhere?

I've attached one of the e-mails that I could access, but when I try to go to the next or previous I get the log in page again.

Thank you.

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. What email program are you using? Perhaps Outlook Express? I once needed to recover some emails which were somehow lost when I created a new user account. I used google and searched for outlook express email recovery (or some similar, it has been a while since I did it). I found lots that you had to buy, but also some freeware. I found one freeware that enabled me to find those files and move them to the new profile. I suspect this is what you need to do. Sorry I don't remember the name of the program. It did take a while to find it but once I did, it was easy to transfer the emails to where I wanted them to be. Give this a shot. Put google to work and see what you can find.
