Hi I'am trying to save all my e-mails and the put them on my new PC.
Is there any way to do this. Ive tried to save the e-mails to another folder using copy and paste but the option to paste in the new folder outside outlook express is not there. Any one have any thoughts on how to resolve this.

I dont know what system you are using but you could look to export from the old and import into the new email system?

File, Export, Messages.

Look for outlook express backup, there is a free version. Also, not used OE for a while but isnt there a facility in there to export messages? They are stored by default on your C drive but i forget the path.

Copy your Outlook Express data folder onto a Memory Stick. It's usually found here...

C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

You may have to view hidden folders first.

Copy the folder across onto your new PC. I usually drop it onto the desktop.

Open Outlook Express and choose

Messages (Choose the correct version of outlook)
Select default identity and Browse
Find the folder on your desktop and select it.

Should all go smoothly from there.

I'm doing this from memory so some of the steps maybe incorrect but it's fairly obvious once you start.

Paste them into the same directory on your new PC and they'll all be there in OE.
