Moving Email addresses

I have just taken delivery of a new PC with XP. Can anybody tell me how to get my Server BT Open World from Windows 98 to my new PC and also is it possible to change the email address at the same time. Many thanks.

Not sure about XP but under win 98 etc you could go into Dial-up Networking and right click on your connection icon, go to properties and that will tell what number you are dialling to connect to the internet. Make a note of it. Click on new connection and add the number.

Go to start, settings and network connections. Right click your dial-up icon for your connection details.

click here and get the dial up connection software - it will automatically install your details on the XP mcahine. You will need to d/l it on the win98 machine and run it on the XP machine.

With BT you can have 5 (?) emails so go into your a/c on the bt site and choose add new mailbox.

Many thanks all. Well I have managed to get BT Openworld icon up on the screen. However when I click on it I get a window which just says Email and when I click on it I get Outlook Express with a window saying "Errors have occurred" The host AOL could not be found etc This happens when I try and send an email Would like to get on the BT web site but how. I am at the moment using AOL free 120 hour trial but would prefer to use the BT which I am used to. I am nearly 80 so not to much technical thank you :-)
My old base unit is now disconnected as I am using the old monitor on my new XP Base unit.
