Hello helpful people,
I'm trying to migrate my Outlook Express email messages from my old XP laptop which suffered a motherboard death last week. I've got the hard drive connected via external enclosure to my Vista Ultimate 64-bit desktop. I didn't have any trouble getting Windows Mail to locate the .dbx files and import the appropriate folders, but when I add the "Account" column to the message view, there is no data in there. I've got 8 accounts funneling email into this program, so it's rather critical that I have the information readily available in the window.
I read somewhere that anti-virus software might be removing the data, so I tried the import with my anti-virus and Windows Defender both disabled and still no luck. Thinking it made a difference once before when upgrading my hard drive, I tried doing the import with all the account information set up under "Tools" --> "Accounts..." and then again without any set up at all. Same result both ways.
Anyone have any ideas how to get the import to include the Account column information? Much appreciated. Thank you!
