yes search your Hard drive for files with a DBX extention if you are using Outlook Express 5.  So just do a search for *.dbx and will bring up a full list of your mail folders.  You can then (if outlook express is closed) copy it to a CD and move it to the other computer.  Once the file is on the other computer  Just copy it to the folder where all the DBX files are listed on that computer.  do a search the same way on that computer.  If there is a folder by the same name just rename the one you copying over to a unique name.  Then right click on the file and uncheck the read only from the file and delete the folders.dbx file.  Then start up outlook express.

Do a File - Export. A Wizard will come up and you can choose the folder you want to export. But it only exports to MSOutlook and Outlook Express formats. Be sure the other program can import the file format.

the expert will not work with Outlook Express the export will ONLY work with outlook the old exchange client on the same partition that Outlook Express resides on.  Remember though OE6 is still beta software so it could still be flakey.  THe reason the files are not showing up though is because you have the option for show hidden files and folders not selected.  Once this option is selected the search will return the result for the DBX files

oh just in case you are needing help turning that option on in Windows you will need to go to Tools/Folders options/View Tab and you will see the option listed in there.
