I'm getting a new PC but don't want to go through the pain of re-subscribing
to all my newsgroups again and getting up to date. Is there a way to move my
newgroups directory/database to the new PC and point OE at from there so I
don't have to go through this painful process?

And is your new PC going to have Windows XP on it?

Just checking! ;-)

This newsgroup is for support of Outlook
97/98/2000/2002/2003/2007 from the Office suite of products. Outlook
Express is actually a separate program despite the similar name.

For help with your OE questions, try an OE newsgroup such as
microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general (for OE 6), or
an OE help website such as http://insideOE.tomsterdam.com. If you're
accessing the Microsoft newsgroups through the MS Product Support
Services "Community Newsgroups" web interface, click
http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...px?dg=microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general
Good luck!
