Just use the export tools.  For outlook 2007 you will just export your mail to a file (.pst).  Click on File > Import/Export and follow the wizard.  Same rule generally applies to the Microsoft (windows mail).  You can do this also for your contacts.

Then on the new system (just choose import).  If importing to outlook just open up import from a file (.pst) and for windows mail just specify from other program, windows mail/outlook express etc.
