Thursday, October 16, 2008 09:13 Hello.
Please accept my apology for having sent a previous copy of this e-mail without a subject. I'm still new at this but I shall endeavour to be more careful about this next time. I have a problem with SeaMonkey Mail. My problem seems to be virtually identical to one reported by Terry Towne on November 16, 2006. (It was not apparent to me that he had received a resolution to his problem. I hope one will be forthcoming.) I have a 20GB hard drive on my computer. Due to an old BIOS, when my computer initially boots, the computer only sees 8GB of the drive. However, once Windows 98SE boots, it can see the whole drive, but... it has created 2 partitions: - partition #1 is labelled as C: with 1.99GB - partition #2 is labelled as H: with 17.0GB (The drive was actually formatted on a newer computer, which has a problem at the moment. The drive was in a mobile rack, so I removed it and placed it into my older backup computer. This computer has an 808MB drive in it, labelled D:, a 4MB RAM drive, labelled E:, a 150MB Bernoulli drive, labelled F: and an external CD-ROM drive, labelled G:.) As the partition labelled H: had so much space, I decided to put my mail on that drive. I created a set of folders called H:\SeaMonkey\Mail\Local Folders to put my e-mail into. (BTW, SeaMonkey is on H: rather than on C:.) During an upgrade of SeaMonkey, I _thought_ I could just recreate the mail folders' setup that I had before after I did a clean install, however, not really knowing what I was doing, I now have the latest version of SeaMonkey (still on H:) with its own Mail directory structure but am unable to get it to recognize mail stored in my... H:\SeaMonkey\Mail\Local Folders. In that folder, there are a number of files in the following format: filename filename.msf There is also a filterlog.html file and a... msgFilterRules.dat file. I have been able to open one of the "filename" type files by using Open File in SeaMonkey, but it has a lot of html stuff and is somewhat difficult to read, and as the file has MANY e-mail messages, it is slow and cumbersome. Is there a way that I can get SeaMonkey Mail to import these older messages into its current directory structure? (I tried the import tool which handled my Outlook Express Mail very well, but although there is something for Communicator, there is nothing to help with my situation... which is to be expected as I KNOW I don't know what I'm doing, and know this wouldn't make sense!) Any help you could provide me would be greatly appreciated! TIA. Paulcesquire __________________________________________________________________ Yahoo!
