About a month ago, I lost all my saved AOL mail. I tried restoring from backup, but even the backup file was corrupted. I had to completely reinstall AOL to fix the problem.

I found a backup of the PFC from 5/31/05, so all is not lost, but I'd really like to get it ALL back (and in one file).

Other than to ditch AOL (I know, I know)... any suggestions?

Ideally, I'd like ALL my mail - pre AND post 8/19/05 in the same PFC file. I've also seem some utilities that claim to export AOL mail to Outlook.

On a scale of 1-10, my computer skills are around a 6.

Thanks so much!

Kathleen

Isn't that called putting all your eggs in one basket?

Ha.

I'll back up the final result. I'd just like to be able to go to one place to view all my old mail (right now it's in two places and I'm still missing a few months).

Eventually I'll get rid of AOL. I keep saying that, but I've been procrastinating because of all the websites I'll have to change my address on (especially the ones for my bills and stuff). Ugh.

Plus I still haven't decided what email client to use. I'm good at application user stuff, but not web/email client configuration stuff. So I continue paying through the nose for what I thought was a fail-proof email client. Did I say "Ugh" yet?

Thanks,

~K
