First you need to go into Windows Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/View and select 'show hidden files and folders'. You can find your outlook folder now in C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.All your emails will be there for you to transfer where you like

davie boy you gotta laugh mate. Maybe his an English teacher, is that red ink I see.

Still using outlook, take a look at thunderbird, this should let you transfer setting when you install it.
I then copy the entire file from one computer to another and it transfers e-mail accounts along with all the e-mails. Full easy to follow instructions on their site.

Also it is easy to have it remove spam, I switched to this from outlook 2000.

Changing ISP will not affect your Outlook Express folders.

As to your English, pretend you are writing a letter.
