I've been using earthlink's email pgm and am switching over to outlook express. I was able to transfer my addresses okay but now want to transfer over some of my email messages. I was able to save my earthlink email messages to a csv file but OE doesn't seem to have an option to import a csv file. Is there a way to get OE to import a csv email messages file?

The last I heard AOL uses a proprietary file system for storing e-mails and address books. I am also not aware of any freeware that works with more recent versions of AOL. I did find one company with a Google search. They are selling a $24.95 software package that is supposed to do the job. I have never used the software and can not speak for how well it works or ease of use.

I wonder if anyone knows in what order email messages are filed in the folders in Outlook Express? I have set up folders for all my email messages but it seems they get filed at random, and in no apparent order. I was trying to get them filed so that the latest messages are on top (as in Yahoo Mail), but I searched all over and couldn't find a way of doing this.
Any suggestions? Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Outlook Express Email Messages Organizing

Hi toujours

If you would like the most recent messages to be listed at the top, click on the Column header Received, clicking it again will toggle the order from Ascending to Descending.

If in View>Current View, "Group messages by conversation" is checked, then the messages will group themselves and be a bit harder to locate by the date. Deselect the "Group messages by conversation" so that the most recent messages will be easier to find.

Let us know if this works for you or if I am off the mark

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.

I mainly use Outlook 2000, however, in order to get a number of Hotmail messages onto my computer's HD, i synchronised Outlook Express with Hotmail. I now have messages from a folder I have on Hotmail on my hard drive too.

A search revealed that this folder (and presumably all messages in it) is stored under C:\Windows\Application Data\Identities\{00B31680-0793-11D3-A398-C0610D677E39}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.

I copied the .dbx file named hotmail - [folder name].dbx to my desktop. I went in to Outlook 2000 file>import blah blah blah, but it wont let me import .dbx files

soooooo.....is there anyway to get my messages from hotmail from this specific folder into outlook 2000? i no longer need the folder in hotmail and will just delete it as soon as i have a permanent copy on my hard drive in outlook 2000. im assuming that since the dbx file is on my hard disk with all the messages (which i can read offline in outlook express) that i wont need to set up outlook 2000 for hotmail synchronisation ?!?

When WIN XP atrts up, error reads: "spoolsv.exe - application error - Exception in privileged instructions at location 0x66f46798". Too high tech for me! Bypassing this, I, cannot print any messages (emails) in Outlook Express (or Outlook). Get error:
" Error line 1343" If I DO hit debug a yellow arrow points to a line that starts with a colon. I can probably copy and paste that line here if needed.
Comments: No spyware, no viruses, because of other problems , reverted back to IE6 (from 7).
Please note: Word and Excel docs all print fine. I can copy and paste the email into Word if necessary. Outllook sends and receives normally, it is only the print function failing.
In Add/Remove did a repair on Office 2003, nothing changed. Googled spoolsv.exe and some think it is a virus (I don't).
Another error that came up (once) was simply: "c:\program files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" If this file is missing, can I just copy it from another XP unit here and put it into place without further screwing up the works?
Any help appreciated - if further info needed (like a screen grab of the debug instructions) please advise.

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.
 

A:How do I import messages from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002?

Update: I realized that Outlook can't open the .dbx files and that Outlook Express has to export them to Outlook. However, when I tried this it only exported the messages in my "Sent" folder and none of the messages in any of the other folders, including Inbox.dbx which is about 500MB in size so I know the messages are in there. Any advice on what to do next?

For some unknown reason my OE messages will not display. All my subjects are still listed but clicking (highlighting) them does not result in the message being displayed. Just as disturbing, or more so, this is also true of all messages store in folders in OE. I have also just discovered that I can not compose messages in OE either. I can address them, enter a subject, but not get into the message body to type my message. Note also when trying to read messages when I move the curser over the message body an hour glass occurs along side of the curser as if another program is trying to load. No matter how long I wait the message never occurs. Using IE 6 with OE. It has been working fine for years up until the past week. Thought about trying IE 7.0 beta to solve the problem but being a beta am not sure if I want to try that. Still getting my email through my isp and Thunderbird but I need info from those saved messages in my folders. Any help with this will be appreciated.

My computer has a problem. All my .exe files do not work. I can't open any programs. Here is my question: I need to find all my e-mails in order to transfer them to another computer so I can reformat my drive. How do I do this? The computer is running XP with outlook express version 6.

Thank you so much.
 

A:How do I get outlook express messages?

Outlook Express keeps email in .dbx files...Inbox.dbx, Sent Items.dbx, etc. To find them, first make sure to "un-hide" hidden files by opening a folder, any folder, and going to Tools>Folder Options>View tab and putting a check mark in "Show hidden files and folders," click OK.

Then do a search of the hard drive for "*.dbx" (without the quotes, with the asterisk and dot). Since no programs will open, and you cannot, therefore, open OE>Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder button to find out which folder it's using for email messages, your best bet is to save all .dbx files you find. After the reinstall, using OE's Import feature, figuring out which is the right dbx file is a matter of trial and error.

The address book, if you want to save it, is a .wab file. Same method as above only search for "*.wab" and save them all. Don't save "wab.exe"...that's just the executable and does not contain any addresses.

When you're ready to import the data back into OE, be sure to get all the Windows updates first. Often OE will refuse to import data until it has been updated to the same point the OE that created the data was.

Hello.
I have a large email group - over 200 names - in Outlook Express Address Book. A number of outdated email addresses bounced back to me. I wish to remove them from my Group. But OE seems to list only names, not email addresses. I cannot find a way to search by email address. Therefore I am faced with the task of looking up each name's properties to see if it's the email I need to eliminate.
Surely there must be a better way!
Or should I just find a better program to use? If so, suggestions?

I have 2 problems:

1. Several days ago, instead of getting my messages at Outlook Express 6, I instead got this error message:

The server responded with an error. Account: 'Elaine', Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.ca', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR problem retrieving message.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

I called up my ISP and they said a message was either too long or corrupted. My incoming mail server is from Yahoo. I have things set up to have my Yahoo messages forwarded to Outlook Express. The tech told me to manually go to my yahoo mailbox and delete messages until my Outlook Express works. I did so and it worked. I thought the problem was solved. It wasn't. I keep getting that error. I started taking notes of what messages cleared the problem and it became obvious that it has nothing to do with the messages. Some are from friends and other e-mails I often get. It just happens.

Could anyone please help?

2. My system gets an error that it's going to shut off in 30 secs I believe is the time listed. It goes off too quickly to write down the error. This has been happening for a couple of months and restoring the computer to earlier didn't help.

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 tdonahue
Welcome to TSG

Pick up DBXtract here for Outlook Express version 5 or higher:
http://chattanooga.net/~scochran/DBXtract.htm

DBXtract will extract your messages as .eml files which you can then drag into Outlook Express.

If you are using Outlook Express version 4 you will need the MBXtract program.

Or see this Page
http://chattanooga.net/~scochran/backup.htm
and follow the instructions in the last paragraph.

You will need to copy the Inbox.dbx file to your harddrive and remove the "Read Only" attribute.

I hope this is a simple question...I have Windows 98 with Outlook Express 6. When I open my Outllook Express, it posts how many new messages I have that are un-read. I have been told, that if a virus/worm is in the message, it will be in my computer. So here is my question: When I open the listing page, which lists all the new "unread" messages in order, then the ones still in the listing as previously viewed, I notice the first message is displayed. Does this not cause a problem, if it is already open, as the first message always shows. In fact, when I try to delete, I cannot, unless I highlight the message, and it is pasted in front of me. How do I not open messages, just reading the heading, and using the delete button? Same with these messages when they are sent to the deleted folder???
Thanks in Advance,

A:outlook express 6 compact messages

All of your email is stored in a single file on your hard drive. When you delete messages and empty the trash, the file becomes "fragmented" similar to how your entire drive becomes fragmented when you delete files and download new ones.

Clicking the OK button basically defrags your Outlook Express mail file. It MAY empty your trash folder, but other than that, it doesn't delete anything from your inbox, etc...

I would say that clicking OK and letting it run will not only clear up some space on your hard drive, it will make the message go away in the future.

A:Outlook express won't delete messages

Maybe you reached the limit of Outlook express. Can you try the maintenance options found under tools/options/maintenance tab. Start by clearing the deleted folder, then run 'clean up now' to compact unused space. Let us know how it goes.

If that works....also advise you to delete old emails not wanted again and compact again afterwards also.

I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.

My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to Earthlink.net with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.

When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.

I thought it might have something to do with installing SP-2 on my XP Home Edition BUT SP-2 was installed about 6 months ago and my e mail problem started about 8 months ago.
That is my problem! Can anyone offer suggestions?
 

A:No Outlook Express Messages Are Printed

Hi George-2

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

So if I understand correctly, you can send and receive emails ok.

The problem lies in that the messages you receive are blank inside?

If you run your mouse over the inside of the message, does anything show up in the highlighted/selected area?

Perhaps your fonts have a white color?

Are you able to create a new message and see the fonts inside?

Let us know.

I am running windows ME. I get error message with yellow ! triangle saying "The message could not be deleted"
 

A:Cannot delete messages in Outlook Express 5

you may have a corrupted mail folder. If you are lucky, it is the
Deleted Items folder, and not the folder you are trying to delete the messages from.

For a corrupted Deleted Items folder:
- Close Outlook Express.
- OE5+: Locate the file Deleted Items.dbx in the mail directory and delete it. You can
use Start, Find, Files or Folders, "Deleted Items.dbx" to find it. .
- Open Outlook Express again. It will create a new empty Deleted Items

I have updated Norton Antivirus and scanned hard drive with no viruses detected. My email, Outlook Express, keeps downloading the same messages over and over. I delete them and remove them from the deleted items folder but they keep downloading. And, sometimes each message is duplicated.

Any ideas?

I use Hotmail and have it as an account in Outlook Express. When I receive a Hotmail message, it shows up twice in Outlook Express. How can I keep it from doing this? (When I am in Outlook Express and go to Tools>Accounts>Mail, Hotmail is listed only once.) Thanks, grandpaw7

I don't use Hotmail, but it may be becuase Hotmail has a separate inbox. See Known issues with Hotmail

I think I may have received a couple of corrupt e-mails. I couldn't open them or delete them. My computer froze everytime I touched them. I could receive ad send e-mails, and I could delete all othere, except, those 2. Now, I can't delete any e-mails. I followed the directions to delete my deleted items.dbx file, but, which I did, but, I still have the problem. I have Windows XP. I am limited to what I can do so if anyone has any advise, please be very detailed. If you get too technical I won't understand what you are telling me. I appreciate any help. I hate the thought of having to take my computer somewhere.

I tried doing what it said to backup all the messages by compacting the files, but I couldent find the file it compacted. It never told me where it put it, and dident let me name it. So I poked around for a while and ended up finding the area where it saves all the messages in C:\Documents and Settings\Timma\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{2169B9EC-C551-4F4D-A3F0-316B50FA458C}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
After seening lots of files that matched the messages in OE I figured that I could save all these files, then replace them after reinstalling WINXPHE. The old operating system was WINXPHE too, the computer just needed to be cleaned up. Anyway, after placing them back in their original spot it wont detect anything like i was hoping, am I missing something? Plz help, I really need these to come back. Thanks in advance.
 

A:How do I restore old messages to Outlook Express

Hi MrFuzz

Almost there!
With Outlook Express closed, go back into that directory and delete the Folders.dbx file.
Restart Outlook Express, a new Folders.dbx file will be created and your folders and messages should show.

Check these steps:
In Outlook Express
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab
click the Store Folder button to see the path where the Identity keeps its .dbx files.
Close Outlook Express.
_____________________________________________________________

Open Windows Explorer, navigate to that directory, delete the Folders.dbx file for the Identity.

Move or copy the saved .dbx files into that directory.
Verify the file attributes are not Read-Only.

Restart Outlook Express, your folders and messages should appear.

Let us know what happens.

I Have Windows XP Professional and Outlook Express 6 on a PC.

I have lost the messages from around 6 or 7 or my Outlook Express folders. The individual folders are still there, under Local Folders as usual, but they are now empty.

I can see .bak files in the Recycle Bin with the same names as the folders, and have tried to import these back into Outlook Express after changing the .bak suffix into .dbx, but without success. I always get an error message that says: "No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open. Please select another folder or try closing applications that may have files open."

Can anyone help, please? Also for my education, is a .dbx file an OE folder file or a message file?

Hello to all,

I need to format my hard disk and install win xp from scratch. I need to backup all email messages from outlook express (both Inbox and Sent folder). I'm not sure how to do that.
Is there any standard way to do it using outlook itself, or I need to find where these messages are placed and copy that folder?

Thank you
