Look at the Properties of your Outlook Express folder in your profile. What is the size of that folder?

Hello LIR

The sent folders are 1.1GB, 1.7GB & 12MB. I have tried the 12MB folder on its own and it wont import from outlook 2002 or export from OE6. It goes through the process of importing/exporting the files on the screen but when you look in the outlook folder there is nothing there. The largest inbox folder was 1.3GB and it exported fro OE6 into 2002 fine?
Hope you can help

So you're trying to Import one folder at a time?

Outlook 2002 has a 2 gig limitation on the pst file, so that's probably where the problem lies.

Unless you create multiple pst files or update to Office 2003 or 2007, what you want to do won't work.

I will try splitting the folders up and retrying, if that doesnt work I will have to upgrade.

Thank you for your help.

Splitting the files won't help. You'd need to remove unnecessary folders so that your pst file doesn't reach 2 Gig.

I have tried importing into outlook2007 with the same result as with outlook2002. I will reduce my folder sizes as you recommend and try again. Thanks again David

David, when you create the new pst file in Outlook, make sure it's in the Personal Folders format, and not Outlook 97-2002 format.

Control Panel
Mail
Email Accounts
Select Office Outlook Personal Folder File
Then store it where you want.

You'll then need to set that as the Default Mail Delivery File
