Firstly, don't copy the files to the same folder, create a new one.
Secondly, you MUST also copy the file called folders.dbx to be able to do an
Once you have done all that, in OE do a File-Import.

1.Can OST Files Be Copied From One Machine To Another With No Impact

We are migrating a large number of PCs to newer hardware.  The environment is 
WXP with Office 2000 on both the new and old machines.  Our users have very 
large OSTs (on average over 1GB).  As the Exchange server is remote, we would 
like to copy the OST files from the old machine to the new machine on the 
local LAN intead of re-syncing fully with Exchange. We also will be copying 
the Outlook registry settings between the PCs and preserving the OST location.

Should this work?  Any caveats?

2.Copying old.dbx file into new machine

  After browsing and trying various solutions available in the forum,
I have still not been able to open my dbx file that I saved from my
old machine running on windows 98.
The method that should have worked was copying the dbx file into a new
folder on my new machine running on XP, then importing the messages
from my desktop folder via OE 6. However, I get an error when I try to
select+open the folder, saying "No messages can be found in the
folder ...." What could I be doing wrong here? Been 3 hours of trying
now and getting irritated :)


3.Copying .dbx files to CD for use on other machines

Am I beating my head against a brick wall?

After downloading a large multipart newsgroup file I want to copy the .dbx 
file to CD so I can combine and decode on another machine with OE. When I 
tried this I receive the message ...".dbx is not a valid win32 application." 
The files in the download in the .dbx file are Yenc encoded.

Any suggestions?


4.Running one copy on more than one machine

I am a Mac user tring to run office x

Back in January I call Microsoft because I was suddenly getting a 
message that I had exceeded my license agreement because another 
user was already using a copy of office.  This was true becuase I was 
using it on my laptop.
I was told by the tech support person that I was in fact  allowed to use a 
single license on both my Laptop and 1 desktop unit (as I have been 
doing for years) and after a long call I was told to be careful that I 
update my operating system on both machines so that I was always 
running the identical version of my OS on both machines (OS 10.1)  
Sure enough that did the trick and I was back in business.  I know face 
the same problem again now that I am running OS 10.3.2  

I have updated both machines to comply with the original solution, but 
this time nothing.

Help would be greatly appreciated
