    Hi,

    I have a Windows 98SE machine that I use Outlook Express on. I am getting a new laptop with XP on it and will no longer be using the 98SE machine. I will also be using OE on the laptop. I need to transfer *all* my email stuff from one machine to the other and have it all set up on the new machine in OE just like it is now on my old machine.

    I want to transfer over my mailboxes/folders, all my emails (with their attachments intact), as well as all my different mail accounts and their passwords and info, etc. (I have several, some are checking separate email accounts, some are dummies that exist so I can have a variety of names/addresses to send emails from in that drop-down "From" bar on emails).

    What is the best way to get all that stuff over there and set-up exactly the same way? (I've seen some info on transferring emails, but not really mail accounts themselves and all that.)

    I also have two separate identities in OE (one for my wife, one for me) that I want to transfer over as well (so all the above is for my identity). On the laptop, I plan on setting up two separate accounts/log-ons. So how do I make sure the two separate identities are transferred over intact, then also make it so each one opens in OE corresponding to whoever's logged-on?

    Any help is appreciated -- thanks! :)
