1. click here click on Bootcamnp and see Numbers 309-311.

2. On old PC, in IE File/Import vand export and export favorites to a floppy. Then follow a similar procedure to Import on the new one.

The easiest way to transfer your e-mails and favorites is to search your old machine for .dbx files and copy them all to a cd including folders.dbx. These should all be in the same folder, and unless you have a program such as Autocad, they will all be e-mails and have appropriate file names such as Inbox.dbx, Outbox.dbx. Then copy the Favorites folder to the cd. On your new machine, again find the location of the dbx files and overwrite them with the saved files, and find the Favorites folder and overwrite it with the saved one.

Having just been through the same experience I can say that exporting, Address book, Favourites and Cookies works like a dream.

However, I have had no luck with the emails. I followed the instructions on Outlook Express 'Help' and put the dbx files on a Zip with the other exports. When it comes to uploading them, the 'Help' index gives no instructions whatsover and a search for dbx files or folders reveals nothing.

I hope you have better luck.
