how to import DBX files from outlook express into windwos mail



  • 1. Problem with Receiving Windows Mail in One User Area
    I have two computers. One is routed to the other. In my first computer, there are two users. I am the Administrator. In the second computer, there are three users, the same two names as on my first computer, a third named as the Administrator. On my second, routed computer, in only one User, when I click on Send and Receive, up comes a box asking me to connect using a Dial-Up Connection. I don't use a dial-up connection on these computers; I have a wireless connection. I've checked the properties of my wireless connection, and there seems to be no problem. What steps can I take to stop this Dial-Up Connection box from popping up so I can send and receive my Windows Mail on my second computer?

copy the .dbx files to the Vista computer
open WM, File - Import
just don't open the folder the .dbx files are in.

This was someone elses message but it applies-why is this so hard?


I've read all of the posts here and not one of them help at all.

I'm looking on how to import outlook express email accounts into
windows mail. I can import the email messages just fine, but not
my 15 email accounts.

I have created a folder and stored this onto the windows vista
machine, named: Outlook Express Email Accounts.

When I go to: Tools => Accounts => Import. A box appears
that says "Import Internet Account".

I select one of the Outlook Express 6's *.iaf files and I constantly 
get this error: "The import did not complete because an error occurred."

What's causing this and how do I fix this frustrating problem.

Thanks kindly for any imformative solutions you can provide.

Help please, there is information in these .DBX files that I need!  The new 
Windows Mail won't import the files either.  Thanks all.
