Transfering e-mails to another PC

By williamoshea ·
Dear Colleagues,
I am changing the computer of my boss who uses outlook express e-mail client. He has created loads of sub folders in outlook express and he wants this folder structure and all e-mails transfered to the new computer. Is there an easy way of doing this. Which files holds all the e-mails on the old PC? Was thinking of copying such a file over to the new PC to overwrite the existing and probably empty one in the new PC.
Please help help help.,

hook up the old pc'c hdd to the new as slave. now boot up and start outlook import of addresses and mail in whatever order your choose. with for the file with ext. *.wab in the old drive, this is the address book.

with for the folder with files with ext. *.dbx this are the inbox, outbox,etc folders in outlook express. pls mark that folder coz you will need to know its location when importing MAIL. When importing pls comfirm to check the all folders box.

It works only if your old pc is running win98...
