Transferring address book and messages

By john2803 ·
How do I transfer my whole Outlook Express address book and message files to Outlook on a new PC? Old PC is Win Me, new one is XP Pro.
The export function doesn't do the trick.

Transferring address book and messages

You will need to copy your Outlook express data file to a CD or something and then save it to your new computer. You should be able to import your Outlook Express data into Outlook.

After you copy the old Outlook Express file to your new computer, run XP Outlook and select File, Open, Outlook Data File. Select your old Outlook Express file and it should open it for use in XP Outlook. You can then Drag the folders and addresses you want into the XP Outlook folders.
