Restore Your Outlook Express Mail!
 
If multiple people use this program, each user must log into Outlook Express and follow these instructions to restore their email.
 
1. Insert the disk containing your Outlook Express Backup folder into the appropriate drive.
2. Double-click on My Computer icon.
3. Double-click on the icon for your Zip disk or CD to view the contents of your back-up disk.
4. Double-click on the Outlook Express Backup folder.
5. Open Outlook Express.
6. Arrange the Outlook Express window and the Outlook Express Backup folder window, so you can see both at the same time.
7. Within the Outlook Express Backup folder, open the Inbox folder.
8. Go to the Edit Menu > Select All.
9. Drag the highlighted messages over the Inbox folder in Outlook Express. The Inbox folder will be in the upper left section titled Folders. When the Inbox folder darkens, release the mouse button. Now, the messages will begin copying over into that folder.
10. If you have other folders in your Outlook Express Backup folder, you will need to repeat these directions from Step 7 for each of the folders.
