Depending on how the mail was backed up you will need to import the messages back. See the following link for instructions. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q270670

1. Open outlook express.
2. Go to Tools > Options > Maintenance > Store Folder > Copy the path.
3. open explorer and paste the path (till Microsoft) For eg:- C............\Microsoft
4. Rename the Outlook express folder to any another name(say outlook express2)

Open the Identities folder...Copy the Outlook express Folder and paste inside the (Current outlook express)Microsoft folder...Now you can see two folders

Outlook express
outlook express2

Close the OE and open it once more..and if everything is ok..delet the folder, outlook express2.

Best of luck

Regards

Open explorer and paste the path (till Microsoft) For eg:- C............\Microsoft

Rename the Outlook express folder to say, Outlook express 2. Now Paste the folder that you had copied earlier in this folder.

Open outlook express. Check whether the mails are intact. Import the corresponding address book.

Create another identity.

Log in to that identity and repeat the same procedure.
