Gary, Thanks for info. I was successful in doing that as an Export process
, but when I tried that process in reverse to import to new computer it
wouldn't import fromthe new c: drive. I was successful with "brute force"
method suggested by Steve, but it is cumbersome. I like your way better but
haven't been able to make it work all the way. Thanks so much for explaing
the limitation of windows mail. Now i know why it seemed I was butting my
head against the wall.
