Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help. I want to keep all my e-mails from my inbox in outlook express and put them in the inbox of my new computer. How do I do this.

I have just brought new laptop.
I am confused what to do
I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

Thank you

Richard

The files should be located in
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{E45557EC-68A7-4D2B-A819-6AF4524BFF97}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

copy the files to your new computer in the same location

ok, I have a this very same problem but a little differnt. Instead of between 2 comps it is between 2 HDD's on the same comp. I am moving everything onto the new HDD. But when I try to copy the files I am getting a "access denied" It may be in use or locked by another program. How do I get arround this? Safe Mode?

Like Khayman said, e-mails are located there: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\

Identities folder is the one to be saved. But I wouldn't perform a simple copy/paste. In Outlook Express, go to File > Import > Messages and give it the path mentionned above, import all messages/folders and you shouldn't have any "access denied" issue as you only import/copy them and not move them. This way, you're sure all filles will be copied the right way.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
