Sorry for not answering your post last night but being the boring old fart that I am, I need all the sleep I can get. I thought I had that angle well covered - I have a program called backup Email which saves all my email settings to an external hard drive but when I tried to restore, the program failed telling me the information was corrupt.
To be on the safe side I will use OE's own export and import setting.
Thanks for you assistance - all the best to you and your clan.
