There is a tool under Programs on the start menu called "Microsoft Office Tools > Save my settings wizard"

For all office programs, including Office Outlook Express, it will save all the settings you are able to save, so that's your best bet. You then use the same tool to restore the settings on your new computer.

the easiest way is to backup the dbx files. just do a search for *.dbx and copy them to another location

What OS is on your old PC? If it is XP, open "Accessories", "System Tools", "Files and settings wizard". That will help you export your settings to a network drive or some other media, and the same option will help you import these back into your new PC.

With older OS's it is included in Office like has been said, but if you can't find it, you may first have to reinstall Office on the old PC.
