Hi dlp1013:

Unfortunately you can't import mail settings, but you can import the address book, contact etc, even old and new mail. The two programs are different so the settings themselves are not compatible. If you need more, just ask.
Best regards,
Dennis

Actually you'll find Outlook and Outlook Express allot easier to configure, use and backup than MS Mail.
