    Our old email program was OE. How can I transfer the messages from OE and
    onto an external HD so I can import them to our new computer and into WLM? I
    was able to get the contacts list over, but have been having less luck with
    the messages. There are messages in there that I can't afford to lose. Thnx.

    Tools, Options, Maintenance, Store Folder from within OE on the old
    computer. Find this folder and copy everything in it to your external HD,
    then import to WLM. If you have Windows Easy Transfer under Start,
    Accessories, System Tools that will copy the messages too but not directly
    into WLM.

    If you really couldn't afford to lose those messages you would already know
    where they are and have a responsable backup plan in place. Hard disks do
    crash now and then, or you press the button to start up your computer and
    nothing happens.
