I have a machine with 10 different pop3 accounts set up in Outlook. How can I save the account details so I can set them up on another machine, or recover them; as I need to reinstall the OS?

Hi,

you can use the "Save my settings wizard"  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826809/en-us

This will save your Outlook profile.

Hope this helps.
