This was really helpful for me, too. When I upgraded from Vista Ultimate to
Win7 Pro, I tried to use Easy Transfer. But, I wanted to go back to 32bit on
Win7 (I was using 64bit Vista). Turns out, Easy Transfer does not support
this. Why? Who knows, they are just data files.

But the mail profile is not and it's in the mail profile where the connections
