 mails: ms fox pro to outlook
My Dad exported his Outlook message boxes as ms fox pro files - he
meant to save them before re-installing outlook. But since he does not
have fox pro, he now cannot access those files.
Does any of you know a way we might be able to restore the messages?

Thanks,
Hanne Gottliebsen

Hi,

during reinstall, Outlook doesn't delete any personal folders. So, the
easiest way would be to find out the file with personal folders
(something.pst) on your harddisk and use that one. If you formated the
disk or otherwise deleted the personal_folders file, you can import
messages from Foxpro file the same way you've exported them. But you
will loose your attachements.

This is just what we tried, but only the subjects and the sender names
are restored, not the contents of the emails. And not all the contents
would have been attachements. Also, the foxpro files are quite large
for only holding names and subjects. There must be more in the files!

That's strange. I've just exported my emails to foxpro and then
reimported them and I have full messages without attachements, but
otherwise complete. Let's have a look into the foxpro files. If you
don't have your own foxpro, thereis is a bunch of free DBF viewers on
the net, or you can try eg. MS Word + Mail Merge...
