I have been asked by a 'non-technical' friend to re-install Vista x32 his PC after the MB and PSU decided to give up on him. I have fitted a spare HDD as the original one refuses to boot with the replacement MB. First thing I done was try to run the repair but Windows is convinved the drive is failing and refuses to correect it.

Anyway, I installed Vista on the other HDD and done all the drivers, updates, activation, etc and it is running fine. I can also browse the old HDD through the new install and have recovered all of the important things like photos, etc.

However, I cant for the life of me figure out how to retrieve all his emails and account settings. I knew how to do it in XP (with a little help from Google) but I cant find anything that covers this for Vista.

Anybody here know how to retrieve all the emails and settings from the old HDD and import them to the new install?

Thanks for the reply. I spoke to hte owner this morning and it transpores that he was using Windows Outlook rather than 'Mail' which could explain why I couldnt find what I was looking for.
He is installing Windows Outlook on the new HDD so I assume the procedure is the same as for mail?

Apparently he used Office 2k3 to install Outlook (and the other bits too) and he will be using the same disk again to re-install all the office apps.
