    Hi,
    Does anyone know how to transfer old emails and contact lists (from Outlook express) from a crashed computer to a new one?
    Old computer is unusable but I have access to its hard drive via a caddy I can plug into the new laptop.
    New Outlook account is set up on the new computer.
    Not sure if old account had been backed up or saved... if thats even possible.

    Thanks,
    Luke

    Exchange C: for your old PC's drive letter
