Re: PMail folders on XP - how to move to Win 7 PC

    Re: PMail folders on XP - how to move to Win 7 PC

    FYI....

     

    Things are not as "easy" as just looking at an About | Help | Info to confirm a location.

    I already knew the location(s) of the files:

    Old XP = C:\PMAIL\MAIL\ADMIN

    New Win 7 = C:\PMAIL\MAIL\ADMIN

    Just "copying" the files in the MAIL folder from the OLD XP system into the NEW WIN 7 location resulted in a message stating Pegasus mail wanted to SET UP the whole software again, its connections, userID's, userPW's, etc.

     

    How did I get around this?!

    COPIED the files located in the OLD XP C:\PMAIL\MAIL\ADMIN folder **NOT** the  "IMC-3E8" or "IMC-3E9" or "RmtFiles" folder(s).   JUST the REMAINING files in the folder.

     

    Now, not to make anyone mad, but when a person requests help - please put some "effort" into the help response.

    Here is what I found within the FAQs section of the Pegasus Mail Web Page:

    Problem:  I have recently purchased a new computer, and I want to copy my existing Pegasus Mail files to it from my old machine. How do I go about this?

    http://www.pmail.com/faqs/faqs_wsi.htm

     So there are TWO ways to do this.

     

    Hope others find this helpful if / when moving from XP to Win7+ and/or having the file(s) but had to build an all new hard drive....
