Microsoft Outlook Express which is an advancement to Internet Mail and News imports the Internet Mail and News message store at the time of installation automatically. It is capable of importing messages from applications such as Eudora Light or Eudora Pro (by means of version 3.0), Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Windows Messaging, Netscape Communicator, and Netscape Mail version 2 or 3. Nevertheless, Outlook Express lacks the required command to bring in Internet Mail and News messages subsequent to installing.
To accomplish your goal to import Internet Mail and News messages into Microsoft Outlook Express, you have to start copying the .mbx files (Internet Mail and News mailbox) to the Outlook ExpressMail folder, and subsequently build the Folders.nch file again. To achieve this task, you need to carry out the following steps:
Stop using Outlook Express by closing the application. Click Start, go to Find, and click Files Or Folders after that. Type *.mbx In the Named box, and click Find Now to start the search process. Assign a new name to the .mbx files that you would like to import to Outlook Express. For instance, change the name of Inbox1.mbx file to Inbox2.mbx.
To gain more knowledge of the methods to rename a file, go to Start again, click Help, and then click the Index tab. Type renaming, and soon afterward click the topics related to Renaming files.
Keep in mind that you should rename all the files that you want to import since Outlook Express contains a folder and file hierarchy identical to Internet Mail and News. If you do not assign a new name to these files, you may write new data on the top of existing mailbox files in the Microsoft Outlook Express folder.
The next task is to copy the .mbx files to the Outlook ExpressMail folder. The Outlook ExpressMail folder is placed in the below-mentioned folder automatically:
pathApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook ExpressMail, where path indicates the route to the Application Data folder. Give a fresh name to the Folders.nch file which is present in the Outlook ExpressMail folder. For instance, name the Folders.nch file again to Folders.hcn.
Remember, when you go for renaming the Folders.nch file, your present non default folders are listed as Folder1, Folder2, Folder3 and so forth. The Folders.nch file comprises a listing of the names of folders. When you name it all over again, Microsoft Outlook Express will be unable to detect the listing, hence it must restructure the folder names employing default names. In the end, start Outlook Express application.
When you open Microsoft Outlook Express, the folders must be visible in the Folder list. You can subsequently assign new names to the folders or move Internet mail messages among different folders.
