Having had a nightmare trying to get used to Windows 8 I have almost completed my transfer from XP. Until about an hour ago I was happy to use the Mail App even though it does not support POP accounts but by using a GMail account. It works-ish but I do not like the layout of the Mail App.
Just as I was cleaning up the desktop I spotted 'Outlook' from an install of Office 2003 and this got me wondering......
....I have managed to set up my old Outlook Express account on the new PC but I cannot import my old e-mails. I have Exported them onto the new PC but when I go through the Import process and it asks for a location when I click on where I have stored the emails (and contacts) it says it cannot open the files.
1) Is this even possible, what I am trying to do (or does W8 block it all somehow)?
2) If it is possible, do I have to create a file with the name that I have taken from the 'storebox' or whatever it is called, in Outlook Express?
Many thanks in advance for your help, please do not point me in the direction of the microsoft solution because it simply does not work.
