Transferring E-mails in OE to New Computer

  Cuttle 20:30 07 Jul 2008

Can anybody tell me how to transfer emails which I have filed in folders in Outlook Express on my old computer, to similarly-named folders in Outlook Express on my new computer please?
I can't drag the folders to my A:/ or D:/ drive to do this, and Windows' Files & Settings Transfer Wizard won't seem to do it either. Also I can't find ordinary filenames for the emails, which I'm wondering may be at the root of the problem.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for the Ganfyd information. Have you any experience of this process by any chance? I managed to pick up the archived emails from the old computer OK, but then became lost (points 4-6). Is it just a question then of copying into My Documents in the new computer and then pasting that file into the new folder in OE? Sorry to appear obtuse!
