Hi, I upgraded my computer from Win2000 to WinXP. I was previously using Outlook Express, and saved my mail to folders, etc. Now that I'm using XP, I have changed to Outlook.

Can someone help me find my old mail that was saved to the folders? Also, is there a way to get my address book from my Outlook Express?

I tried loading outlook express under the winXP, but it was a blank slate.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I'm Freddie.

To what folders exactly did you save your e-mails? Computer folders? If this is the case, simply do a search with windows explorer.

As for your address book problem. When entering Outlook for the very first time, it will give you the options to import your address book from Outlook Express.

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express and look for wab.exe...double click the file and see if it contains your lost addresses.
