Hey! ;)
I have done the registry editing once again. Do you want me to scan again with ewido?
I'm doing the transfert from my old session to a new one for all my emails but there someything weird going on. For my old session the dbx files are in: C:\Documents and Settings\myfirstname\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{3C2D243C-A138-4FC9-908D-4084B5F7FCE4}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
just like so said they would be but for the new session i created it the identities folder is in:
C:\Documents and Settings\myfirstnamemymiddlename\Application Data\Identities
It isnt in local settings\Application Data. Should I move this folder to the given directory before moving all the dbx files?
Also I am not the only one with a profile on this computer (my dad has a profile too) can i repeat the same actions?

thnkx :tazz:

did you try logging in as an administrator, then try it to all users?

Your old profile should reflect all your emails on your account, it would be different for another user, its old profile will reflect all his profiles too respectively.

Hey!
All accounts have the administrator status but if you mean loggin in as the Admisnitrator (the profile) I did that too. And the Identities folder is in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data.
Can I still move all the e-mail even though the directory for my new profile isnt the same as for the old profile?

Thats it, the catch here is that whenever you make the new profile there will be changes on the paths of the directory. So, to refresh it to remember its old settings you must overwrite it with the old profile. Important is you keep back-up of the old profile because they contain the necessary settings of your previous account.

SETTINGS OF OLD PROFILE --> NEW PROFILE (overwrite).

Play with it and give it a try, let me know how did it go. Just always make a good back-up of the old profile. :tazz:

Hey!
Need major enlightment here :)
The paths directory is the one thing that is bothering me.
The directory for my new profile do I modify it so it corresponds to the old directory from my old profile?
overwritting my new profile with the settings of my old profile is done exactly how?

awaiting your instructions :tazz:

that is the point the directory of the old profile should replace the new profile. When I mean to overwrite it, it means to copy&paste the specified folders from the OLD profile to the NEW profile, a confirmation will state DO YOU WISH TO OVERWRITE EXISTING FILE/FOLDER
