How do I recover email and address book in Windows Mail?

I have to do a backup and recovery of my windows mail in Vista.  My computer will not
boot properly and I am planning to recover the data by connecting the hard drive to a different pc and recover the data.  After reinstalling windows I plan to restore the email and address book.
I believe the email stuff is in the following location:

 C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders\ then your Inbox, etc.

Once windows is reinstalled and windows mail is setup, how do I transfer the mail messages and address book into the windows mail?
