    Migrate OE mail files to Windows 8


    Hi I am a newbie here and to Windows 8. I am trying to migrate my email folders (sent, saved, etc.) from OE6 and windows XP to the new Windows 8 mail. I have managed to get the DBX files on flash drive But I cannot find any info on how to migrate it to windows 8. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Use the Windows Easy Transfer app. It will tell you how to import/export all your email contacts, documents, music, photos, etc. from your XP to Win8. You can do it through 'Cloud' too but since you have them on a flash drive do it by the former method.
