Can anyone help me - I have an old Compaq Armada running NT4 and I want to move my archived mail messages to a Windows 200 Dell Latitude. I dont have a CD burner on my old pc - PC World recommended a parallel cable but I cant seem to get it to work. Advice would be appreciated.
It may be long-winded if you've lots of mails but if you create a folder - say Archived Mail - then open your email client you can drag your mails to this folder - 1 at a time unfortunately. Then when you've finished save the folder to floppy disc. You can then copy tham to your new pc. btw if you've any mails with the exactly the same subject you'll need to rename the 1st one you copy before the next one.
If you go into help index and enter parallel theres some info on linking pc's. Another option is to just fit a cd-r or cd-rw into your old pc. You can get one fairly cheaply now as you can see from this link click here
