Re: Outlook Express to Windows Mail

Bruce, Sorry I misstated problem while Compacting. It does this after going through all Folders. Window opens that looks something like below:
Cannot complete as other application is open or in use.

I Click OK to clear Window. I have it Offline.

Thanks Again,

You're welcome. However, Folders.dbx needs to be compacted. But first, is 'Online' the name of a folder you created?

Got it both ways described. Thanks for Tips Bruce. Bruce, OE seems to Compact on it's own every 100 closes of OE. That & manual Compact always end with a Window saying Folders & Online could not be Compacted.

I've got a *.bak (was a *.dbs until OE Compacted it to the Recycle Bin)
Folder in my PC with XP and was wondering how to take that folder & import
it into Windows Mail? I don't want to Restore it on my XP PC with OE as
it will overwrite a folder with newer Email.
Thanks, Bill
