Really? I live in Notting Hill (Ladbroke Grove). If I take the tube, I could be there in 45 minutes (Circle line and Central line).

Anyone else living in London? Perhaps we could really have a coffee all together if we manage to gather enough people.

In anticipation of an entire United Nations of hackers infesting my Outlook Express starting Wednesday, I have taken the first step to move my immense warehouse of historically unique and invaluable emails from Outlook Express on XP to Outlook in Office 365 on Win 7.

That first step was to Export everything from OE6 to Outlook 2003 which has always been on my XP machine but never used until today.  In that way, my OE6 .dbx files have been converted to Outlook .pst files which can be moved later to Outlook (O365) in the Win 7 machine. 

With very good tips from the website slipstick.com, this first step has gone fairly well, but with one glitch -- MANY pictures/graphics that were embedded in my 3,427,865,559 OE6 emails have been replaced with blank squares with small red Xs.  This is mildly annoying.

In Outlook 2003, I have now UNchecked Tools - Options - Security - Download Pictures - Change Automatic Download Settings - Don't download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail,  But it has not restored the missing pics/graphics in the already-downloaded treasure trove of emails.

What to do?  Delete everything and re-Export from OE6? 

Could one of you FIRST UNcheck that option and THEN Export from OE6 to Outlook 2003 your emails that are full of photos and dancing banana gifs and let me know what happens?

Many thanks as always.  I knew I could rely on you guys!

UPDATE - Even with that option UNchecked, and even after temporarily disabling shield scans by my Avast, new test emails have their graphics stripped out when received by my Outlook 2003. Any thoughts why?

What's really end for XP by tomorrow beside Windows, .NET and IE8 security updates?
What about MSE definition?
@Dibya looking forward for your final patched PAE kernel !

I know you've been waiting ...

After almost 24 hours hunched over my XP machine and trying everything suggested in my old guide "Dishwasher Installation for Dummies", I stumbled across the answer.

My computer-science philosophy is that if nothing else fixes it, it must be Avast causing the problem.  And I was ... WRONG.

I noticed that Avast's email-shield SSL settings are using outgoing SMTP secured port 465, and then I recalled that my Outlook Express (and therefore Outlook 2003) outgoing SMTP settings have 587 (from back when AOL couldn't figure out how to deal with taking over Verizon's unwanted verizon.net email accounts. like Trump with the Guatemalans).

So I checked again on AOL's email help website, saw that AOL is NOW pointing to port 465, made the change in the Outlook SMTP port selection, and my emails have their graphics!!!  

I'm not sure why a wrong OUTGOING port selection could block INCOMING graphics, but I guess that the emails are actually links to graphics on external web servers and so must reach OUT to bring the graphics IN.  With the correct port setting, they apparently can now make that connection.

There are still a few small boxes with red Xs, but I'll use them for target practice.

Of course we'll never know why this was not a problem on Outlook Express 6 where I had the wrong setting 587 for a decade, but who cares?

NOW TO STEP 2 - TO MOVE THE WHOLE ELEPHANT SAFARI TO WIN 7.  But first I'm headed out to enjoy a lovely spring day in NYC and to contemplate life after XP - starting VERY SOON.

Cheers!

PS - Outlook official version 16 that is part of my Office 365 on my Win 7 machine is UHHHHH-GLY, man.  Ugly!!!!  I already miss OE6.

@glnz: did you get yourself a full-body Velostat vest already? If not fetch one fast: you must be ready for when, precisely 24h after April the 9th, a horde of 6.02214086 × 10²³ raving-furious hackers drop into your machine, after all, isn't it? :unsure:

Remember newer viruses will target Vista and above so they will not run on XP .

You will be more safe on XP than on 7

That's true. I think the biggest threat to XP is malicious javascript. Modern trojan type viruses will probably have missing libraries, etc for XP.
