    Moving email messages from one computer to another (XP/IE 6.0)

    I have 2 computers networked and I sometimes check my email on each computer. I have a local account thru my ISP. Can I move messages from one computer on another? Can I do this on a floppy? Where are the emails stored? Can I save emails on a floppy or CD instead of printing them out in case my computer crashes? Thanks for your input...

    Re: Moving email messages from one computer to another (XP/IE 6.0)

    Just a quick warning. Although you can indeed copy emails from one machine to another, they are done in the form of folders - eg your inbox will be a file called inbox.dbx - and when copying the .dbx files from one machine into the other, be aware that the inbox.dbx being copied in will *overwrite* the inbox on that machine, not merge with it. Therefore don't copy the standard folders (because you can't rename them - put the emails into another folder you created) and make sure that any you are copying do not have the same name as those at the receiving end!

    Hope this makes sense!
