I assume that Outlook has an equal or better import wizard than comes with OE.

If so, your best method would be to use the wizard, and point it to the location of the Netscape mail files for each profile that you want to import.

In OE, Import is under the File menu.

I'm familiar with this procedure, but you can only import Netscape Mail 2.x, 3.x or Netscape Messenger 4.0x (not 4.75). Selecting either of those options and drilling to my Netscape mail folders does not work!

Okay, that points out a difference between Outlook and Outlook express. I have moved mail files back and forth between OE5 and Netscape 4.X.

I suggest that you see if you can download updated import filters from the Microsoft Office web site.Alternately, you could install OE 6, transfer the files from Netscape to OE, then import them into Outlook.

I imported my Netscape mail into OE5 as you suggested, then imported the OE5 mail directories into Outlook. Worked beautifully! Thanks for your help.
