Windows 7: Do a backup of your E-mails! - great application!

I'm afraid nothing beats leaving your mail on the server, and that's a totally free solution to eMail archivage and restoration to your local archives in the even of losses, changes in hardware, etc

My brother kept all his email since 2001 on yahoo mail. Then they lost all of it and they blamed him for not using a better password!

This application is very slow, takes ages to backup and doest not have the restore option. The export mail option will not export to WLM. So for WLM users looking to backup and restore between computers, this is not the correct option.

Importing backed up OE files into Outlook

I recently purchased a new desktop running Windows 7. I was a diehard Outlook Express user for many years and was diligent about backing up all of my e-mails to transfer to my new PC. Of course, since OE is gone, I am now running Outlook for my e-mail client (WLM doesn't appeal to me at all). I have tried to import the dbx files into Outlook, but haven't had any luck.

In an earlier post, someone mentioned "For Outlook express just change the data area where the folders are stored and just save these with Windows express." Can someone explain the "Windows express" to me?

Thanks in advance.

I think he means (in post #2) that in OE you don't need a backup program. Just copy the location tree in Windows Explorer where the OE files are stored to the place where you want to back them up. The easiest way to restore them is to use the File/Import feature to bring the backed up emails into a clean install of WLM.

BTW, this also applies to OE and Vista's Windows Mail. In all 3 cases you can use the Options/Maintenance feature of the mail program to find out where the "message store" is located within Windows Explorer.

Welcome to the club. All your problems start now. I have been unrelentlessly looking for solutions just simply to copy folders from WLM to WLM and there is no solution. Please keep us posted about your above problem and if u do find a solution, all the best.
