Welcome to the group. We look forward to your input and insight. The transfer 
of messages should be possible. Outlook express folders can be uploaded to drop 
box, see this link:


However, it may be necessary to first move the OE messages to Outlook on the 
old computer, or install windows live mail on the new system, to make the 
transfer possible. Check out this link to an overview of the matter:


Hope this gets you moving in the right direction.

Subject: [lcfbtech] New member introduction and question

Hi listers,

My name is Al Taitague and I live in Fairfield, CA.  I am what I like to call 
myself an information junkie.  I am happy to assist anyone on the list with 
problems that I may have information on or have experienced in the past.  But 
today, I have a question concerning the Drop Box service.  I just joined and am 
on their 100Gb plan.  My question involves whether things like settings that 
are on an older computer running xp will easily sync if I open say a Microsoft 
word 2003 document using an office 2010 version of word.  Will the two 
different files sync up despite the difference between the versions of the 
programs opening them?  Then there are bunch of messages that I would like to 
transfer from the computer running xp and using outlook express to the windows 
7 system using outlook2010.  If the folder containing the folders and messages 
in outlook express are moved into the drop box folder will I be able to do such 
a transfer?  And if I can, how or what is the simplest way to do this?  Anyway, 
thanks for any help with the questions I posed and I look forward to possibly 
helping others on the list in the future as well.

Al Taitague Jr.
