Outlook General >> Get back to Outlook

I have a laptop computer on which I installed Outlook 2002. Actually, as
soon as I bought the laptop I formatted the hard drive and installed
everything from scratch (XP Pro/SP1, Outlook 2002/SP2, etc). Everything
worked great for several months. Then one day there was a problem involving
hybernation mode and powering off the laptop. I don't recall the exact
sequence and it's probably not important. But what happened when I finally
restarted the laptop after the hybernation/sleep problem is that my
installation of Outlook seemed to have been replaced with Outlook Express -
but only for the news reader. The news reader specifically came up
announcing that it was Outlook Express, and that's what it still says in
Help/About. The laptop has been stable ever since that one incident which
occurred several months ago - but my news reader is Outlook Express, while
the rest of Outlook (calendar, etc) is Outlook 2002 (SP2).

What can I do to get my news reader back to Outlook and not Outlook Express?

Thanks.

Outlook General >> Get back to Outlook Actually, your newsreader was always Outlook Express, it was just branded to
say Outlook NewsReader. If you had gone to Help, About, it would have said
Outlook Express. Your previous newsreader wasn't any different from what you
have now, it just had a different splash screen and possibly a slightly
different toolbar.

Outlook General >> Get back to Outlook Okay - but now I'm a bit confused...

On 5/3 at 6:00 PM, I posted the following question about creating backups of
newsgroup messages I have saved to my personal folders. The response I got
was that I'm using Outlook Express and that was a problem. So, now that I
apparently don't have any problem (it is OE anyway for news reading), what
is the answer to the following question about backups?

--- REPOST FROM 5/3 FOLLOWS ---
I subscribe to a few newsgroups such as the one this message is posted in. I
periodically save copies of various posts to folders I have created in
Outlook under Local Folders (e.g., LocalFolders\Newsgroups\C#).

I would like to be able to create backups of my local folders and be able to
restore to another machine.

How can I do this? I tried File | Export | messages - which ultimately lets
me select my folders; when I click the [Okay] button, it appears to export
(I see a progress meter increment), and then the export status messages
disappears.

Where does Outlook create the export file? In what file format is the export
file?

Thanks

Outlook General >> Get back to Outlook The Export will export the messages directly from Outlook Express to
Outlook. It will not allow you to export them to a file that can be read on
another computer.
