    I was wondering if someone could assist me with this problem. I'm using
    Vista Home Premium with Outllok 2003 as my default e-mail client. When I
    try to import my mail from Outlook Express v6, I get the following message:

    "The import folder could not be opened. If another application is using
    this file, please close it and try again"

    I'm not able to remove Windows Mail (WM), so it is still there but it is no
    longer the default e-mail program. Also, I have removed the mail account in
    WM.

    Bring the Outlook Express email into Windows Mail, then export it from there
    to Outlook. See this link.

    Note: there is a newsgroup for windows mail in vista:

    OK. I have exported my Outlook Express Mail messages to Windows Mail. How
    do I import those messages to Outlook 2003? I'm stumped.
