the folders.dbx file. When you reopen OE it will create a new one and the messages should be listed.
I had to reformat my C drive but before I did, I copied all of my old messages to a CD. I didnt export them. I went to the folder that they are stored in and copied them over to a CD. I had done this in the past and didnt have any problems with getting them back. But this time, Im having problems. I did copy them to the new folder that stores all of the old messages, bugt when I go to OE, they dont show up. Does anybody have any idea how I can get them back? Im runing XP home
