Are you asking how to move your actual e-mail messages from one computer to another? The e-mail address can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.

Most e-mail programs have export/import functions. Export the addresses to the hard drive of computer A and email that file to yourself and read it on Computer B. Save file to hard drive on Computer B and import it into your email program.

If you know the file name your email program stores addresses in, you can skip the export/import thing and email that file to yourself. Read it on computer B and save it to the same folder you sent it from.

Thanks very much for your response however IF i understood it correctly then perhaps my question should have been how do I transfer MY e-mail address to new computer unless your reply also applies to my address.
Thanks for your patience but as you can see this is all a bit new to me.

Yes, my answer does apply to both computers.

1. Export addresses on Computer A to a folder on Computer A

2. Log on to your email program on Computer A

3. Write an email to yourself on Computer A, attaching the folder from step 1. Send it.

4 Log off your email program on Computer A.

5. Log on your email program on Computer B

6. Receive the email you sent to yourself on Computer B

7. Save the attached folder to computer B

8. Import the saved folder on Computer B into your email program.

That should do it.

An e-mail address is not tied to a computer. The instructions lagunasrfr is posting apply to transferring the e-mail addresses of other people from one local e-mail client program to that on another computer.

You need to be more clear in what you're trying to do. For example, are you using Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Outlook, or some other program to check your e-mail? If so, what is it? That's the type of information we need to know.

If you only want your email address and nothing else,
then type it in to the address book of whatever program you
use for emails.

YOUR e-mail address doesn't change from computer to computer, if that is what u are asking. You can log on from any computer, but only one at a time.
