I am currently using Outlook Express and I would like to transfer all of my

e-mail folders, etc from Outlook Express to another computer Using Outlook.

The Outlook Express is on a computer that is using XP Pro sp3 OS and I would

like to transfer it to another computer using Win 7 Pro OS but using Office

2003 and Outlook that comes with it.

Can someone tell me which filenames (full pathname) to copy so I can

configure the new computer so the Outlook will have all of the information I

have now (including all folders, like send folders, directory address, etc).

Thank You,

Gary

You would need to Configure Windows Live Mail on your Win7 Pc

Copy the Outlook Express Identity from your winxp system to Documents folder

of the win7 PC

In WLM import that Identity.

Configure Outlook on the win7 pc, test outlook, then in WLM export msgs to

Exchange (outlook)

WLM is the latest incarnation of Windows Mail

The OE Identity is at C\Documents & Settings\'username'\Local

settings\Application Data\Identities

You have to view hidden files to view this folder

If you want to transfer your OE address book, search to include hidden for

the 'wab' file
