    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    OK, all's well that ends well. The toughest part was finding the cussin' PST file in Win8. The awkward Search engine didn't even find it! The only way is via: Tools|Options|Mail Setup|Data Files This led me to the vestigial PST file for the newly-created Outlook account on PC-2. I...

    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    OK, what I did now was locate the WAB file on PC-1. I copied that file to the PC that has both the OE6 & Outlook dummy accounts. I imported the WAB addresses into the OE6 account. Then I opened the Outlook account and imported the addresses, pointing to the dummy OE6 account. All 30 items...

    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    No ma-am. There is NO (*.csv) file whatsoever. Nada. Actually, I think the problem is easier to explain now that I've done more checking. In the original machine (PC-1), there are 30 items in the Address Book (Addresses on the toolbar). But in the dummy OE6 account on the machine I...

    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    Yeah, I was afraid you were gonna say that. I already tried that before (since it was the only other thing to try). I chose that, entered a file name (Save exported file as:), and browsed to a destination. Then it presents a menu of choices for the format (Select the fields you wish to...

    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    Thanks for the advice, Diane. Unfortunately, it sounded like a bit of a hassle to do it that way. I copied the store folder to yet another machine that has OE6 & Outlook on it. I created a dummy OE account, as well as a dummy Outlook account. I managed to get the Store Folder installed to...

    Importing OE6 e-mail to Outlook via Store Folder

    I have OE6 on PC-1 and want to import the e-mail to Outlook on PC-2. Unfortunately, PC-1 does not have Outlook on it and PC-2 does not have Outlook Express on it. I did manage to locate the Store Folder { ... } for PC-1 and transferred this PC-2's C-drive. I searched via Google and saw...

    Killing reading pane - "globally"

    Re: Killing reading pane - "globally": SUCCESS! Thanks Diane. First a little clarification. When I say "2nd Account", I mean 2nd profile with an account in it. I now have 2 profiles and 2 accounts (the original Outlook profile and its account and the one I created by porting the OE6...

    Killing reading pane - "globally"

    • As to my reason, as I said initially: It chews up valuable real estate, etc. • All my Outlook accounts are POP3 (no IMAP). • It appears that your Start | Run Outlook.exe /nopreview "permanently" did the trick for the Main Outlook account. • My 2nd account was created via export...

    Killing reading pane - "globally"

    Actually, it seems to be "permanent" for my "main" (original) Outlook account. But for the one I added recently (for my personal e-mail ported fromOE6), the Reading Panes are still there. What a pane!

    Display of photo images directly within the e-mail message

    Firstly, I'm very familiar with the kind of display you presented in bec.png. In the example I presented, there is no such thing nor is there anything like < img src="http://my server/name.jpg" In another post I stumbled onto, I had seen the suggestion to check the the registry -...

    Display of photo images directly within the e-mail message

    Ah-hah, Diane - you may have just enlightened me w/ one of your comments: "Attachments won't autodisplay - you need to select them." I'm not sure I ever realized this but I believe you are saying that an Outlook user can send a picture in one of 2 ways: • As attachments or • Directly...

    Killing reading pane - "globally"

    Thanks for your reply. My 1st line, btw, was supposed to be: This seems to be the robust answer but I can't get it to work: My Outlook shortcut is stored in the Shortcuts folder. I display it on my Desktop. I have attached a window that shows its proerties and, as you will see, there is...

    Display of photo images directly within the e-mail message

    Thanks Diane. I should have clarified: In most of my Outlook e-mails, the pictures are embedded in the reading pane (as you suggested). But I see exceptions for a few of them (where they are attached but not displayed). So I guess I really wonder why the inconsistency? Maybe you...

    Display of photo images directly within the e-mail message

    Does anyone know if there is a setting to allow display of photos within the e-mail itself? I thought that is usually the way Outlook is designed but in several e-mails I examined, in which someone sent me jpegs, there are framed areas on the page w/ a red X in the upper left-hand corner but no...

    Killing reading pane - "globally"

    I don't care for the Reading Pane feature. I chews up valuable real estate, etc. So, I'd like to kill it. I note that once it's turned off in the main Inbox, it reappears on other folders. Is there not a way to globally shut it down? There doesn't appear to be but maybe someone knows of a...

    Limit on importing Inbox mail from OE6

    Problem Identified & Resolved !! His is mainly for Diane, who tried so much to help me on this problem. Of course, it's very difficult for anyone to help another person from far away, especially not being close to the details,etc. Having identified the source of the problem, I wanted to...

    Limit on importing Inbox mail from OE6

    OK. Firstly, fwiw, I checked my Outlook format and it's Unicode (Personal Folders File). As to the other exercise, while not a lot of e-mails, I removed them from several days before the halting point to several days after the halting point, and the result is the same. BooHoo.
