    I am in the process of getting a new computer, and would like to back up my address book and message rules from Outlook Express and import them on the new machine when I get it home. I am currently running winME, and more than likely the new one will be WinXP Home, if that makes any difference.

    Could someone please just give me a quick step by step run-down on what I need to do to accomplish this? Have never done the import/export thing before, so I'm a "newbie" in this dept.!

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't use OE so I'm not sure which of these is the easiest to follow but I'm sure you'll get help with any specifics.

    Good Luck.

    Edit - just seen another post further down by 'Wet Chicken' - a tutorial on working with email folders - you might find it useful to copy / paste the contents of it to a text file and save it where you can find it should you ever need it. As its not been 'pinned' it will probably disappear in the next day or so.

    Just a thought.
