I recently got a new motherboard and the helpful computer shop technician imported the email for me which now is in data files. Monday I set up email accounts (3) and they are going into the newly set up email inboxes but now how do I get all the old email from data files into the inboxes etcetera? Sorry I don't know very much about this at all.

You can either import the old data files, or add them to the profile and change the delivery location of the accounts to use the old pst files. My preference is to add them to the profile, point the accounts to the old pst then move the mail from the new pst to the old ones and remove the new pst from the profile.

ok so where is the profile? I did follow the link provided but that only is for 2002/2003 Outlook and I have 2010.

Ok so I figured out how to select what I consider to be my main inbox as the Default. Then - abracadabra poof! The problem with all of the emails in the data file is gone. Now I suspect that they are still there. I don't know if I found my profile however? Also - I don't think I have a new PST folder - just the data file. I have pst at work so I can work with those but that's on a network and rules are completely different. At home I'm on my own! If I selected my mail inbox as Default, will Outlook still send emails to the other inboxes?

Outlook 2010 uses the account whose pst you are viewing as the 'default' account. Was the pst removed from the profile or just no longer default?

I don't really know - I got a new motherboard and the technician 'exported' the mail I had stored in my documents into the data folder. Then when I got home I called my ISP rep and he set up my email - all 3 email inboxes are now up & running. However there are some issues: one of them shows amount in the inbox (11-12) but nothing physically there and same for deleted file but different amount. That's one mystery. There are 3 email address for me, and data files for each one, as well as the 4th mysterious data file which was selected as the default until I changed it to the one I consider my main email account. I probably do still have old email in the default - where are some really detailed instructions on how to export from there to other email inboxes? That would be helpful. I suppose I should consider buying a book. Thanks for your help by the way.
