you can drag and drop them onto a floppy to save them and then do the same on the new installation

If you are using outlook express you only have to worry about the .dbx files.

These can be found in your identity folder. WHich is usually found at the following location:

systemdrive:\documents and settings\username\local settings\application data\identities\identitynumber.

For example mine is:

C:\documents and settings\myname\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{0680AF47-F2A4-4796-9921-8E26EB191FA3}

Copy the folder {0680AF47-F2A4-4796-9921-8E26EB191FA3} to your new system, and then start outlook express and important your mail from that folder.

Hope this helps
