My old laptop running XP Home with Outlook Express 6 has a number of old emails I would like to save to my new Win 8 computer. Is there a way to do that without sending the emails over the internet?
Thanks for the response TerryNet... That sounds like a good approach. I could install Thunderbird on both computers, import the emails from OE into Tbird, then export to a flash drive and import to Tbird on the Win8 machine. I've never used Tbird before, but am willing to give it a try.Depending on what email client you are going to use, or are already using, on the new computer it may be easiest to install that client on the XP, import the messages (and anything else desired) and then copy over to the new PC.
Thanks again.. I'll be working on it over the next couple of days. Got family visits and Xmas stuff to do today and tomorrow.
