Have you tried export/import? It works well.

MS Outlook... Moving them over

by mtwyford In reply to microsoft outlook

Well, this may depend on the server you are using. Outlook, using pop server, saves the entire mailbox in one file, usually, outlook.pst, or some name with the *.pst extension. Try doing a simple file search from the start menu. Copy this folder over to the other machine. If you are using Exchange server, files are kept server side.
Let me know if this helps

P.S. MS Outlook

by mtwyford In reply to microsoft outlook

Keep track of where the *.pst file is in the original location, usually in the root folder, ie. C:\WINNT if using NT, etc..
be sure outlook is installed in the other machine and move the file over, you may need to rename to prevent deleting an old version... Go to tools menu to be sure you are using the correct file.

here's one more...

Right-click, Properties on the Inbox Icon on desktop, if the personal folder service is listed, double-click on it, the path to the *.pst is the second line. (Or, within Outlook, Tools Menu, Services; same,same.)
If the Personal Folder Service is not listed, your inbox is on the server. In this case, export your email to a *.pst from within MS Outlook, then copy the resulting *.pst to wherever. And, as pointed out, this is not for Outlook Express.

You just have to find out the file outlook.pst and copy it to your new pc and then import with ms outlook.
