I have been using Outlook Express for my e-mail. I decided to give Microsoft Office Outlook a try.

After about 1 1/2 hours I figured how to switch from one to the other. I found it under tools- Internet options.

Could someone please tell me how to switch all the information I have stored in Outlook Express over to Microsoft Office Outlook ? I have a lot pf e-mails saved, sent messages and so forth that I would like to keep.

I have tried but I am not having any luck. Since there are just so many hours in a day, I thought it best to ask you folks how it is done instead of blowing a few more hours trying it on my own. :thumbsup:

Thank You for your time,

Dennis :flowers:

You might find this article informative if you are starting to use Outlook;How To Set Up Internet Mail Accounts.

There are three ways to access your Internet e-mail:
-Press F5 on the keyboard.
-Click the Send and Receive button on the toolbar.
-In the Tools menu, click Send or Send and Receive
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

From within Outlook:

File > Import & Export, choose the action to perform, & follow the wizard to import settings/messages.
