My Uncle bought a used PC (XP PRO-NTFS) and I added the hard drive from his old PC (2000 Ė FAT32) into the new one as the slave so he could transfer all his old files and use for backup. The problem is we canít figure out how to import his old Outlook Express messages from the old hard drive to the new one. He doesnít know what Outllook Express version he was using on the old PC, my guess would be version 5, his new one his 6. We have already tried the Outlook Express Import Export options with no success. Could the problem be that they are different versions?

That may as well be the problem. See if when you press "Send/Receive" messages that it gets all the old ones. It probably won't, and if it doesn't. I don't think that there's anything to do about it.

Make sure the network setup is good... You have to use the mail server provided by your internet service.
