Can I Move Email files?

I want to move all my email folders from my old desktop to
my new laptop. Can I do this? The only way I have
thought of so far is to send them all to me and pick them
up on the new computer. There has got to be a better way!

If you are using Outlook, or Outlook Express, you can
select the folder the mail is in, then click File,
Export, Messages. Save them to a network if you can, as
they may be large, depending on the content of your
mail. Then you'll have to 'Import' from your laptop.

What mail program and version are you using on both PCs?

If Outlook Express version 5 or 6 on both
Backing Up, Recovering and Restoring OE5/6 Files and Settings

If Outlook97/98/2000+ on both
Outlook & Exchange/Windows Messaging Backup

Other combinations require different procedures.
