Preferred Solution: Copying O/E email messages

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi asharif

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Outlook 2000 uses a .pst file.

Do a Search for .pst and copy the .pst file to your new laptop.
You might check the C:\Windows directory first for your .pst file.

Outlook 2000 will also need to be installed on the new laptop to Import the information over to Outlook Express.

Once you copy over the .pst file to the new laptop, verify the .pst file is not marked Read-only, then open it with Outlook 2000.
Start Outlook Express,
File > Import Messages > Microsoft Outlook

Let us know if that works for you or not.

I log into email account for yahoo. Screen opens and it shows Loading... I am using a Vista Home Premium PC. There is nothing on screen but blank page. You see the headings menu in inbox. But, cannot see the inbox and mail. Is there a registry fix or regsvr32 script that I should run, or is there some type of .dll problem? Help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you...
 

A:Email inbox show loading messages. Unable to view messages

You have not said what browser you are using so I will just give a guide using IE8.

The most common fix for this problem seems to be to delete your browsing history, cookies, etc. With the browser open click on Tools, Internet Options, then select Delete under Browsing History, on the next page uncheck all the boxes and click on Delete. Give it a minute or two to complete and then reboot the PC.

This will have deleted all your saved passwords so you will have to enter and save any you use.

This address will go directly to the mail page, if you get stuck, and you could also try using the refresh button.

Does anybody know how to copy and save outlook express messages in from Vista to another pc using XP?
 

A:Copying outlook express messages

Have a look in the file menu for Import and Export.

You should be able to export the messages then import them on the other machine, unless you mean you want to share mailboxes between both machines, in which case it isn't possible.

If you do want to share mailboxes, look at changing to using GMAIL (which can use to get email from other accounts too) then you can use Outlook express to view the email, but keep it stored online, meaning you can access it from both machines.

Hi everyone-
I recently moved to an Exchange server (2003) and started to copy items from my Inbox in my personal folders on my computer up to the Inbox on the Exchange server. Somewhere along the way, something happened that cancelled the copy. Now, my messages are gone in my Personal Folders Inbox and are not on the Exchange server inbox. Where did Outlook put them?

I use Outlook Express 6 as my email client. I receive many emails containing graphics and formatted text that I would like to tweak a little, before forwarding them. I KNOW that I can edit text and delete some elements but I also know that things like the length are very hard to change. I also know that the format controls are locked into the CODE that is exposed when the SOURCE tab is clicked. Short of doing a course in HTML, I believe I can learn some basics about email source code, by tweaking it and seeing the results. But to document what has been tweaked, I should ideally be able to copy the source code UNCHANGED-by-the-copy-process into e.g. WORD or a Rich-Text-Format editor. I have not found any editor that I can paste source code into and have the copy look identical to the original. I thought FrontPage might do the trick, but it wont open EML. Is there a way of doing what I want to do ?

I have computer 1 with Office 365 Outlook - with email account. If I have a second computer and copy the .pst file from one computer to the other, I know that when I open Outlook all the existing emails will be there, calendar, etc. But if I have Outlook set to leave messages on the server, will the old messages be downloaded causing duplicates? I know that Outlook keeps an ID record of emails that are downloaded - but is this kept within the *pst file? If so then it should work that I can copy the *pst file and carry on without duplicates. I can understand that if I created a new blank account with nothing in it, then the old files would download...but will this still happen if I just copy & paste the email *pst account file across (keeping the name the same) - same Office 365....

PST file corruption is the reason of this. Your PST may get corrupted due to various known and unknown reasons. Despite going in details about reasons behind corruption I would like to tell you the solution. 
If you have a backup copy of PST file (created when the problem was not occurring), restore it. I will add that it will result in loss of important emails.
If backup copy is not available or you do not want  to lose your important emails, try to repair your PST file using a PST repair Software. 
Many PST repair software are available from third party vendors, but only some are useful. SO while selecting a software make sure that it is from a certified vendor as well as software must provide a demo version to test the working of software in real world. 
 
You can do some research on Google to get a good software. If you find that boring, reply here I will tell you about some good software.

I use windows 98SE, OE 6, AVG virus protection, free edition wiith no tech support. I thought I would pass my problem to you to see if you have any ideas. I have been getting many virus messages "Microsoft, Critical Patch" and AVG detects them when mail comes in and gives me a message that the virus is there and they will rewrite attachment and send message to virus vault. I click OK and then get another message that they were unable to send the message to the vault. My question is why will it not go to the vault. I have had previous virus messages and they did go to the vault. Thru "message rules" I have directed the Microsoft messages to go to my delete folder so I don't risk opening the message. From the delete folder I can go file and select all and delete all messages without clicking on the message. I also tried thru message rules to "Do not download from server" but they come in anyway.
