    I just built my wife a new computer and would like to know how to download the E Mail addresses from the old computer and transfer them to the new one? Also I would love to be able to do the same thing with My Documents.

    Both systems use Windows XP . And the E Mail addresses are in Outlook Express.

    Depends how large the My Documents folder is.
    I usually use a USB thumb drive.
    Can also use an external USB drive if you need more space
    Can also just share a folder and network them

    With Outlook Express it there's 3x things you can easily transfer in a minute
    *Account Settings..into an IAF file
    *Inbox and all folders..all the mail..in hidden folder, .dbx files
    *Address book, as a WAB file

    You mean the dreaded "access denied" kinda won't open?
