Hi,

I purchased a new computer I'm using Outlook Express and need to transfer all my emails to the new computer. The ISP, Username, Password, and Email are all the same.

I will also like to transfer my address book.

Any ideas? I have all my emails in 11 folders my inbox is empty.

Thanks

Rafael

Greetings, rcleon !

Account Settings
From the old OE toolbar, select Tools > Accounts > Export.

To transfer your email:
1.  Search old hard drive for "*.dbx" and note the folder these files are in.
2.  Open OE and click File > Import > Messages > Outlook Express 5 or 6 > Import Mail from an OE 5 or 6 Store Directory > Browse and navigate to the folder on the old drive which holds your DBX files.

Address Book
1. Search old hard drive for *.wab.
2. In the new OE click File > Import > Address Book and point to the file you found on the old drive.
