    I imported my OE6 messages into WLM,
    but the messages dated before 19/08/1999 do not get imported.
    There is no error message generated.

    Any ideas

    Hi, Steven.

    Which version of Windows are you using? And which version of WLMail?

    HOW did you import your messages? Did you move the DBX files to the WLM
    folder via a network or a thumb drive or a transfer cable - or ???

    If you tell us, step by step, what you did, we may be able to spot where you
    stepped off the path.

  3. That can indicate some corruption in the DBX files.

    In OE you can try File, Folders, Compact All. Then import again.

    That could also make things worse.
