  • Microsoft Mail Remote 3.2

This article was previously published under Q106349


Microsoft provides an AT&T Access Plus Folder Conversion utility, ATTIMP.EXE, for use with version 3.2 of Microsoft Mail Remote for Windows.

For complete information about obtaining and installing the ATTIMP.EXE file, see the following sections:

  • To download the updated file
  • To install your ATTIMP.EXE file


The ATTIMP.EXE utility imports mail folders created by the AT&T Access Plus products to the Mail message file (MMF) used by Microsoft Mail Remote for Windows. You should use this utility only with the AT&T Mail driver. If you try to use it with any other driver, you will receive the following error:

You are not using the AT&T Mail driver. Use the Mail System Selector to select AT&T Mail as the current driver and try again.

For more information about using the Mail System Selector, see the Microsoft Mail Remote for Windows "User's Guide."

Microsoft scanned this file for viruses. Microsoft used the most current virus-detection software that was available on the date that the file was posted. The file is stored on security-enhanced servers that help to prevent any unauthorized changes to the file.

After you download ATTIMP.EXE to a clean directory, run it (by typing attimp at the MS-DOS prompt) to extract the contents of the file. You should receive the following files:

ATTIMP.EXE (17,808 bytes, dated 06-09-93, 10:29 A.M.)

To install your ATTIMP.EXE file

  1. At the MS-DOS command prompt, type the following and press ENTER

    copy <path>:\attimp.exe <destination>

    where <path> is the drive and directory where you ran the self- extracting ATTIMP.EXE file and <destination> is the drive and directory where your ATTIMP.EXE file currently resides. For example, if you ran the self-extracting file from the TEST directory on drive D, and you want to copy ATTIMP.EXE to the MSMAIL directory on drive C, type the following command:

    copy d:\test\attimp.exe c:\msmail

  2. In the Windows Program Manager, create an AT&T Folder Conversion icon with the following properties:

         |            Program Item Properties            |
         |  Description          AT&T Folder Conversion  |
         |                                               |
         |  Command Line:     C:\MSMAIL\ATTIMP.EXE       |
         |                                               |
         |  Working Directory:                           |
         |                                               |
         |  Shortcut Key:     None                       |
         |                                               |
  3. Before you run ATTIMP.EXE, use the Microsoft Mail Selector to make sure that the AT&T driver is the current mail driver and that the Access Plus OUT folder is empty.
  4. To run ATTIMP.EXE, double-click the AT&T Folder Conversion icon created in step 2.
  5. The ATTIMP.EXE utility will first prompt for the path to the Access Plus File Cabinet. It expects to find a directory that contains IN, OUT, and SESSION subdirectories. Except for the IN and WASTE folders, a folder with the same name as the Access Plus folder will be created at the topmost level of the private folders in the MMF. Messages will then be imported to the corresponding folders (these messages are AT&T messages of type MSU, MSG, MSS, MSR, and MSQ). If a folder with the same name already exists, Access Plus messages will be added to it. The WASTE folder will not be imported and messages in the IN folder will be imported into the Inbox folder.


  • This utility does not import address directories, nor does it change the personal address book (PAB).
  • If you run the utility twice on the same messages, duplicate messages will be imported.
