Outlook express to outlook express

By josh718 ·
Hey guys,

I recently got infected with a virus so what I did was install a fresh copy of windows xp on another partition so I doesn't lose all my important documents.

I'm now on the new system and seems like there's no way to fix my old xp so I'm just migrating my files to this new xp.

Problem is I can't seem to find a good way to move my outlook express from my old xp to my new xp.

I know how to import messages by locating .dbx files in the Identities folder in my old xp but I have quite a few identities so importing messages, creating accounts and arranging them will take a lot of time.

Is there an easy way to just copy and overwrite my new outlook with my old one?

Btw I can't open my old outlook since my new xp won't let me..

Really hope you guys can help me out, thanks for reading.

Kind regards,

You'll have to log onto your infected system and run Outlook Express then export your mailbox to a file with which you can import into your new system.

Is cut a finger off a Rubber Glove and place it over the Ethernet Cable then plug it back in.

Works as well as anything else.
