Hi Paul, You can definitely move your stuff without sighted help. When you open outlook, there is an import/export option on the file menu. Look through the choices and you'll find an option allowing you to import from outlook express. You'll also be able to import stuff from your external hard drive.be able to import from There's a backup program called pf backup which you can download. This lets you backup the whole jing bang as a .pst file in whatever location you like. You might want to consider the size of your backup though just because your isp seems to be storing plenty online. I'm with virgin and I think they'll store about 100k messages.

Whilst all sub-folders had been backed up on my external harddrive, I hadn't done this for some time. luckily, I did manage to have around 12 months of Emails re-sent by my ISP. I am in a position where I now wish to move from outlook express to MS outlook, given that the former is no longer supported. Please could someone answer the following questions. 1. How do I move all my Emails from outlook express to MS outlook, (which is already installed on my PC) and can this be achieved without sighted assistance. 2. I have all sub-folders backed up on my external harddrive but want all such Emails on my main drive so I can access them. How can I do this and can I do it before moving to MS outlook or can I wait until I have moved Emails over. 3. It has been suggested that I could put Emails in say My Documents. I did this sometime ago on my work PC but found that some of the text of some Emails was missing. Is it stil worth considering using My Documents as an alternative to storing Emails I wish to keep. I think that covers it for now but no doubt may well have more questions to ask ast some point. Thanks for reding.
