:tazz: I have to copy my e-mails and journal entries from outllok into a third party company specific application. I have not found a way to copy (Ctrl C) the entire (header - i.e. to, from, subject, date) AND the text of the e-mail or journal entry so that I may then past them into the other app. What I have been doing is scanning the e-mail or journal entry, then OCR, then cut andpaste....but this is a time consuming method.......is there another way of doing this? Thanks!!!

Does your third party application have an import button?

If so, Outlook saves emails as a .dbx file. They will have be stored by foldername.dbx in XP they you may find them in Documents and Settings/local settings/application data/indentities/etc otherwise search for *.dbx

Once found make a copy of the file and try importing this file into your third party software.

Addresses can be exported and imported as a text file/csv.

Try using the IMPORT/EXPORT feature and choose I believe CSV (Comma Seperated Values) and just export the fields you need. I don't use Outlook, think it's too bloated for my tastes, but I belive you can export the email messages this way, but not totally certain. Something for you to look into and try anyways. :tazz:
