How do I "remember" passwords from sites accessed in IE8 from my old profile to my new profile?

I access several websites that require passwords.  When I access a site, I checked the box "remember password".  Now I don't have to type in the password anymore.

On Saturday, my computer will be joining a new domain server at work.  I can copy and paste my favorites from my old profile to my new profile.  But when I go to a website in IE8, it will ask me for the password (which I don't have).  Can I copy and paste something from my old profile to my new profile that will have IE8 remember my password?
