I upgraded from 98SE to XP and now I can't open my Outlook Express because I don't have the password. I never used a password on 98 so I have no idea what it might be. Is there any possible way to access Outlook without losing what i have saved on there?
Thanks much !

I didn't use the transfer wizard since I didn't use a password on 98. I didn't think it would affect me opening Outlook in XP.
I suppose I could uninstall XP to access Outlook, then reinstall XP again, or would my Outlook still not function?

I think you may be right about the uninstall in order to access your old OE.

Teach yourself how to do the merge first - Google Merging OE files. You'll come up with enough quality hits to solve it.

98's OE & XP's OE are different versions, but their dbx and wab files can be merged. That way you won't have to access the 98's OE.
