How to Access Outlook Express Messages

#1
I have read on the forums, after searching elsewhere, that you cannot uninstall IE7 in Vista. It would appear I cannot install IE6 either due to a newer version (IE7).

I am in the middle of a case and all of my 'evidence' was in the form of Outlook Express email messages. My old laptop was destroyed, however, I do have back up files of emails.

Now, I can't import them into Windows Mail...tried and when the browse for upload looks at my external drive, it sees nothing, though if I explore, they're all there. And I can't install IE6 to try to import them into a functional version of OEx...any suggestions? I'm getting desperate.

Hi sinduda, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

Which files can you see in Explorer that Windows Mail refuses to see?
