As far as I know you cant.

But you can import all the settings, mail, and addressbook entries from outlook express into outlook.

I must say I havent tried it, but experts exchange is normally good for answers... had a quick look through, all seems simple enough...

Below i've copy and pasted what was on the link I sent


FROM http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;257499

1.Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files Or Folders.

2.In the Named box, type *.dbx, and then click Find Now. Note the path of the file name and location of your mail folders. These are the files that end in *.dbx.

NOTE: If you use identities, each user has their own mail folder.

3.Copy or back up the mail folders to your backup media by using your own backup program or Microsoft Backup (MSbackup) that is included with the operating system.

NOTE: If the size of the mail folders are less than 1.4 megabytes (MB), copy them to a disk one at a time, and then move them to the second computer.

4.Create a folder called "Mail" (without quotation marks) on the computer that is receiving the transported mail folders.

5.Restore or paste the mail folders into the Mail folder that you created. Note to include the Folders.dbx file when you copy from the first computer. This file is necessary for the import functions in Outlook Express.

6.After you have moved all the mail folders, including the Folder.dbx file, to the second computer, use the import function in Outlook Express 5.

7.Start Outlook Express 5.

8.On the File menu, click Import, and then click Messages.

9.Click Microsoft Outlook Express 5.

10.Click Import mail from OE5 store directory, and then locate the mail folder that you created.

11.When you are receive the prompt to select the mail folder that you want to import, click Import all of the Mail Folders listed. This merges e-mail messages into any of the default folders and creates all other folders that are not default on this computer.



Then from the second reply on: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Appl..._21208051.html

Lets say you have one pst already in your OL
You can import the emails from outlook express to get the second PST.
Now you should see 2 PSTs in your Outlook.
Just copy the emails (select all or CTRL + A) from one PST and paste in another or just drag and drop.. Now you would have one PST with all emails and other data..

Remove the other PST and now you got one big PST..

thanks for the replies chaps.

I will have a look at those techniques when i get round to it. I think i will have to install outlook express as well, read the emails then export to outlook.

I have just changed PCs with outlook express on my old one and outlook on my new one which was the reason for my question.

Thanks

tim

What stops you e mailing them to a second e mail address (perhaps hotmail) and then back to your outlook account ?
