Backup the folder called %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\
This holds all the emails. Also see the following link "Windows Mail" section which mentions some registry keys also.
If you want to be sure, you can test this BEFORE you remove the data from the other machine!

I have all ready made the backup with the program that came with vista. I did not find "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\"  when I opened the restore program.
