My old PC runs XP media addition. The data I need to transfer is the Outlook folders. I know Outlook is not on Wins 7 but I need access to the emails in Outlook. There are far too many to copy or print. I have original disks with Outlook.

Is it easier to install Outlook on my Wins 7 laptop, 64 bit and then transfer the data from the XP computer by flash or cable? I will not continue to use Outlook. The info in the emails are very important for a pending legal issue. After that is resolved then I will not have a use for Outlook. I use Thunderbird on both my Vista PC and my Win 7 laptop.

I cannot use the import/export feature because I cannot log into the account. I thought I had the right password but I have tried to log in and cannot. It was a few years ago that I used Outlook.

I do not consider myself a beginner but in this matter I am confused. I am not savvy enough to know the easiest ways to do things that I have never done before. thank you for any suggestions. Gail
