Copy Outlook Express Emails and Address Book

For Windows XP:


Install the Outlook Express on the new computer. Find the Outlook Express folder on the old computer by selecting 'show hidden files' (under tools, folder options), then navigating to:

C:\documents and settings\username\local settings\application data\identities\(series of numbers and letters)\microsoft\outlook express

Copy the entire Outlook Express folder from the old computer to the new, putting it in the same location.

Address book:

Keep hidden files visible as before. Open Outlook Express, select import and then address book. In the dialogue box navigate to:

C:\documents and settings\username\application data\microsoft\address book

Inside this folder will be a WAB file that, once selected, will populate your new address book with your old contacts.
