    I got my desktop all cleared off except for a few things. I need to know how I can take my archive of emails in MS Outlook Express and transfer them to another comp and then back again. Is there a way you can just zip them up?

    And is there anything else I should do before I wipe the slate clean?

    Export the folder to a CSV file and then copy it to another computer(not beakers), format, then import the file back.

    In OE, go to Tools>options>Maintence tab
    Click store folder, highlight and copy whole location
    c:\doc..\user\local..\app..\ms\oe\

    close OE

    start run, paste in location
    Edit, select all and copy all of your email

    Addresses:
    open WAB and export as either a .wab or .csv(text file)

    Both of these can be imported after format
