Bit more to the above.Meant to say if I sign in to my a/c on BT Yahoo I am able to read any e/mails received.Am using IE8 on Vista Home Premium SP2 on the l/top.

Forgot type of laptop what you need to know is what are the operating systems on the old and new machines and what are the email programs on the old an new machines?

i.e.
old - XP and OE
new - Vista / W7 and windows mail.
