Restoring Messages (E-Mails)

Open up your Outlook Express folder, then scroll first to the File menu and then to Import Messages and left click on it. You will then need to click on the "Outlook Express 5" selection and then click the next tab.

Then you must click on the Main Identity tab and click OK.

Click on the to Browse tab and find the file D:Application DataIdentities {3143D8EB-D870-44AB-B5F7-E45D7A0D7659}MicrosoftOutlook Express folder (D: being the media it was backed up on). If you have it backed up somewhere else follow these same directions and then browse until you find the correct path then click OK.

Click Next, then check "ALL FOLDERS" and click Next again.

This will begin the copying process. When it is finished doing the required task, click Finish and you are done.

I hope this helps.

Doc out.
