Thanks for the tips. The references focus on importing the entire set of mail messages. Part 3. of my question was directed to importing a single (or maybe more, but not all) of the messages.
I had to do this about 2 years ago. I found an article that 'talked me through' the process and it was quite simple ( i cannot find that article or reference now). The process did not involve messing with the registry.
As I remember,
(1) you locate where the messages are stored (for the Maintenance tab).
(2) copy all those files to a folder on the c-drive (the folders.dbx file must be included).
(3) from OE mail message page, IMPORT.
(4) 'Messages', for stored directory, Browse to where they are stored on the C-drive.
here is where I can't remember the next steps. It involves either selecting all the folders, or selective folders, and, I don't remember if I import a folder of the same name that I am importing to, will the resident file be written over, or will the new messages be added to the resident messages.
That is what I remember. I wish I could find the article.
