I've been trying to reorganise all my email messages in Outlook Express (OE) 6, and I've "lost" two folder files with a large number of messages in them (lost as in they still exist, but OE can't see them now). I've tried Ragnar Hellspong's ForMorph (reliable, but very slow), which I've had to abort because it is so slow. I've tried Stephen Cochran's DBXtract (reliable, but also rather slow). Now, when I last tried ForMorph on one file with 44,000 messages in it, I had to stop it because it was taking so long after around 4,000 messages were imported, and I saved the session in the import scheduler so that it could be restarted later. I then ran DBXtract 3.9, which only recovered 4,400 items before it finished with an "Extract completed" message - it had only processed around 12% of the file size and 10% of the messages. I now have DBXtract 4, and I am running that as I write this, so I shall see how that gets on. I'm worried that ForMorph has changed the header of the DBX file so that it seems to have fewer items than it does, but it shouldn't have done that. Any other ideas for how I can get these messages back as some of them are very important? And people wonder why I'm switching email client to Eudora... <g>. Thanx.
