On your XP machine, have a look in the help & support files at the capabilities of the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard.

Basically the routine is

Find the folder all your email folders are in.

Copy this folder onto the new system (CD-writer/other disk - cable/network link - email them(?))

Import them into the new OE version.

Ask for which bits you need specific advice with.

Going to File - Import I get asked for an email program to import from. If the files have been saved in a new directory there is no email program.
What happens next.

Sorry, forgot Microsoft's links are awkward, well you've got the article number if you want to check it out.
