Greetings, EdmondClay !

Not in one text file, as in Outlook.  You can copy a whole folder of DBX files to new drive

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.
