Just note down you email settings and set them up in OE in yor new system

At its simplest, your email address (screen name) goes with your account with your service provider.
So if you start with a brand new "box" and sign on with your existing screen name and password the provider will take it up as if nothing has happened. Other people's addresses and all emails will have to be recovered from your own backup.

I suspect you are bothered and bewildered by all you might have to do, so please say which service provider you are using and which version of IE and OE you use? (ie. v 5, 5.5 or 6).

If like me you are using Aol the backup works differently but is easily done.

Meanwhile you do have all your pictures and other documents copied to a another HD or CD?
