ok, I think I figured it out. What I had to do is drag all the EML files
from my backup to a temporary folder in my WLMD hotmail account. I synced
that with my Hotmail account online by doing a send/receive. I then logged
into my Hotmail account and moved all those emails in the newly created
folder to the inbox. Then I went back to WLMD and did a send/receive and
all the emails were back in my inbox again with the correct date/time stamp.
I lost all my flags but at least the messages were back.
In Outlook Express I could just restore from backup and that was it. I
never lost messages in OE like I did with WLMD.
Hope that helps others who have a similar problem.
