Trying to import pst file, I got a message, "You are importing data to a

location that does not fully support Unicode. To avoid loss of multilingual

data, it is recommended that you choose a location that support Unicode, such

as a Microsoft Office Outlook Personal Folder's File."

What does it really mean? Is it outside of Outlook? Which doen't seem to

make any sense. My email contains a foreign language that cannot be displayed

in the subject line in the first place.

Just ignore the warning? Please help.

into?

MS 2003.

Format? I don't know the answer. I exported one of Inbox folders by

File/Import and export... And, the file I am importing is the pst file I

exported.

thx

Why are you importing in the first place? In Outlook do File-Open-Outlook

Data File as posted in all the Outlook groups on a DAILY basis...
