    OK- I've done it again. My computer was messing up... mail inparticular...so I reinstalled everything and actuallly backed everything up this time :) I was so proud of myself. Well, I have everything BACK on but my saved e-mail folders. Those are still safely on the CD (at least the icons are showing) However, I can't get them to open. Any ideas on how I can get at least some of these files back? There's nothing critical, but they would sure make my life easier since I couldn't figure out how to save my address book.

    Thanks!

    P.S. The mail client was not sending my e-mail out... instead of putting it in the Outbox it was putting it in the sent messages folder marked unread...What was up with that??? Does my computer not realize I'm a blonde?????

    Duh! if you drag the mbox file to your user mail folder they come back ...heh heh... only took me an hour to figure that out. :-(
