  • Hi,

    If you only want to transfer the sent items, first you need to manually export the sent items using the following steps:

    1. Create a new folder on the desktop named Exported Mail (on the Finder, click File, and then click New Folder).
    2. Start Outlook Express.
    3. If necessary, resize the Outlook Express window so that the desktop is visible.
    4. Click the folder that contains the messages that you want to export (for example, the Inbox folder).
    5. Select the messages that you want to export by holding down the SHIFT key, and then clicking each message that you want to export.

      NOTE: To select all messages in a folder:

      a. Click one message.

           b. On the Edit menu, click Select All.

    6. Drag the selected messages from the Outlook Express window, and then put them in the Exported Messages folder that you created in step 1.

    7. Quit Outlook Express.

    Then, follow the instructions in the following article to import these .eml files into Outlook:
