    Moving Messages to New computer

    I need to move all my OE messages to a new computer. Are not the messages stored in a file that I can copy? Anyone know which file to copy and any tips on how to do this? Thanks.

    This outlines the process pretty well, please ask if you have any questions.
    (Note, after you export, move the exported files to the new computer, then follow the import part).

    Don't forget to export or copy your address book and favourites.

    Jmatt,

    Sorry, but I didn't follow your point. And the url link at the bottom of your post went nowhere. Care to repost?

    Paul,

    Thanks for reminding me. I did succesfully get the address book backed up (exported). James, above, referred me to a MS Q article that explained everything nicely.

    Panic Over ( POP ) saves to a storage device , your email,
    address book, favorites and docs so you can restore them after a
    reload of Windows 98. You must have a D or E drive to run this program.
