Transferring Email into XP

By AK Norm ·
I need to xfer 1000+ emails for my wife's little business from an old PC running W98SE / Netscape 4.76 to a new PC Win XP / Netscape 7.2. They are networked together through a router. I've tried the IMPORT utility in Net7.2, it didn't work. Said it couldn't find any Net 4.76 files. It doesn't let you browse to anything, either.
I copied the mail folder from the old PC and saved in on the new PC's HD (Desktop). I can't find, in the new 7.2, where the mail is saved.
Can anyone tell me how to load these emails into Netscape 7.2? I've tried other sources, to no avail.
Thanks in advance.

I have not tried Netscape 7.2.

The older versions of Netscape would NOT import mail from Netscape 4.X

Here are a couple of work-arounds.

Import the mail into Outlook Express.
Then import the Outlook Express mail into Netscape.

Download and install Mozilla Thunderbird

Import the old Netscape Mail into Thunderbird.
Then import the Thunderbird mail into Netscape 7.
