Old PC = XP Pro with Office Pro and 2 current email managers, Outlook Express and Outlook. The task = to transfer email to new Vista PC without Office and therefore without Outlook. The OE looks relatively straightforward but how do you work around the Outlook situation. Is there a similar program in the OpenOffice suite? Could I install Thunderbird on the Vista then import the Outlook stuff somehow? Any thoughts and advice would be welcome on this dull, wet weekend :-)
XP computer: In Outlook Express, import messages/contacts from Outlook. Now export a copy the Outlook folder containing the .dbx files to Desktop. Export also the .wab contact files. Copy from Desktop to USB key and transfer to Vista computer. Vista computer: Open Vista Mail and import the data from the key. Some folders had to be re-arranged but all the data was transferred.
