Hi All :thumbsup:

Well, my laptop was out for repair. It was the one I use Outlook Express (OE) for all my emails. While it was being fixed, I used another work computer and got my emails from there.

How do I MERGE the .dbx files from the other computer to my primary laptop. I don't want to replace, I want to merge.

Thanks. :flowers:

I followed "The Man's" method in the link you gave me...up to the point where I was to go to the destination machine to copy my messages to. That part did not work. After copying the .dbx files to the appropriate location, I opened up OE and the folders, but no messages were there. :thumbsup:

After pondering a while and much digging around in Google, I found these links.

http://ask-leo.com/how_do_i_move_my_outloo...ew_machine.html
http://ask-leo.com/can_i_import_outlook_ex...ok_express.html

and it worked like a charm. The only problem with the Import feature is that if the folder already exists and has messages in them, and you want to import messages from another store, it will only over-rite the folder, not append to it. I have no idea how Microsoft missed this.....

Anyways, all is well again.

Thanks for the original link as it helped a lot. :flowers: :trumpet:
