export email messages to new PC

Want to transfer some emails in the OE Inbox and Sentbox from existing PC (win98SE) to OE in new PC (Win XP). Could email them all, but I wondered if using File>Export>messages would do it. Then noticed it says this will export them to Outlook; does it really mean Outlook, or will OE be an option?

Yes the export option will do the trick, you need to export the emails as a pst file. If you plan to export contacts then you need to do it as a CSV (windows) file.
