If you save all the .dbx files and .wab files (if any) in C:\Documents and Settings\%your profile%\Local Settings\Identities\{long string}\Microsoft\Outlook Express, you'll have what you need.

Very Easy! Make sure you can see hidden files. Go to Tools in My Computer and then go to Folder Options. Click the View Tab and make sure Show Hidden and System files is checked and then backup this folder:

X:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities

Where X is usually your C Drive. When you go to your new PC, Open Outlook Express and go to File, Import and then Messages. Choose your Version of Outlook Express and then click "Import mail from an OE Store Directory" and then click next. Click browse and choose the place where you backed up your mail.

WARNING: If you copied your mail folder to a CDROM, Copy it to your hard drive first.

You can do the same thing with your address book too:

X:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book!
