What operating systems are the two computers? If the old one was XP you can export the mail accounts from Outlook Express I think.

Save your accounts and address book from your old PC, then Import them on your new one.

To save your accounts goto Tools>Accounts and Export each one. Save to a usb stick.

For your Address book. Open the Address Book and goto File>Export>Address Book(WAB). Save to the same USB stick as your accounts.

Probably best to put them both in a Labelled folder so you know what they are, and keep it safe. Saves a lot of time if you need to recover them at any time. Just remember to update them occasionally.
