Trying to export outlook express 6 message to another
system. When exporting the messages I get the following
error "The export could not be performed An error
occurred while initializing MAPI". Choose Profile option
does not appear, only error.

I tried to copy these messages to a temp file and then
import them on the new system, but not all the
messages/folders show up in the import selection menu
after selecting "Import Mail for an OE6 Store Directory"

Any Ideas?

Hi rbasly,

This Microsoft KB article outlines the steps needed. Exporting messages is
done to pass them to Outlook.

Here's an easy way to open the message store folder.

Open the Store Folder



a.. In Outlook Express click on Tools, Options, Maintenance tab...Store
Folder.
b.. Place the cursor at the left of the text of the path to the folder.
c.. Drag the cursor to the right until the text scrolls to the end.
d.. Right-click on the text and choose Copy.
e.. In the Start, Run box right-click Paste. Click OK to open the store
folder.
