E-Mail Message Transfer MS 95 Outlook to Outlook Express 6

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Richard Barton, Jul 4, 2003.

  1. I am trying to transfer e-mail folders fromy old PC with MS 95 Outlook to my
    new PC with MS XP Outlook Express 6. When I attempt to use the Import
    Wizard, I get an error message when I try to select MS Outlook to transfer
    from:

    "Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client. An error has occurred."

    I have located the old mailbox folder, mailbox.pst, but the Import Wizard
    does not recognize that file.

  2. Try running Outlook and Exporting the mail to a format compatable with OE6
    then importing from the saved file

    You may need to install the relavent mail handlers into Outlook first
