Can anyone please tell me where Outlook express stores old emails? I need to transfer some from an old HD to a new computer by hand.. Thanks

If you go to OE > Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder button, it will give you the path to where all your email folders are stored, Quilljar.

Make sure you backup **all** the contents of your Store Folder, Quilljar, not just one .dbx file. If you backup just one file you will not be able to restore it on the other PC. Backup the whole folder.
