I need help with my PC. Can anyone advise please?
While I was away, I had my laptop and accumulated many emails, that I want to transfer to my desktop. I've searched on line, even at Microsoft, and can't find any advice that fits my setup or works.
I have a laptop running Outlook 2000 and a desktop running Outlook Express 6, both (obviously) under Windows, version XP. I have tried the "Import/Export" options on both and neither makes sense.
Outlook 2000 offers a number of export options inc. to a file or a Timex watch(!)
If I choose Export to a file, it then asks which type, Comma or Tab separated, or to various Ms Office programmes. I have put various copies on a flash drive to transfer to my desktop. Also I've found and copied the '.pst. file from the hard drive to the flash.
Outlook Express 6 offers import from Address Book, another Address Book, Messages, Mail Account settings, News Account settings.
If I choose the 'Messages' which seem logical, Captain, it then asks which email prog to import from, inc. Outlook, but not 2000. Select that and it goes through the motions, tells me that it has been successful and nothing happens. It doesn't even ask from where or what file to import from.
I've found many online advice threads, but none get me abny further than the above.
