Al, 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: http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=36586 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: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/move-oe-to-outlook-new-computer/ Hope this gets you moving in the right direction.

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. Regards, Al Taitague Jr. ________________________________ I am using the Free version of SPAMfighter<http://www.spamfighter.com/len>. SPAMfighter has removed 6415 of my spam emails to date.
