    How do I move from Outlook Express on an old XP computer to Outlook on a new
    Vista computer? I'd like to move emails, accounts, and address book.
    Instructions I've found so far seem to assume I'll have a copy of OE on the
    new computer, which I don't.

  2. No, you need Windows Mail on the new machine (which you have). Outlook must
    be installed and functional on the Vista machine you're using. You'll first
    need to transfer everything from Outlook Express to Windows Mail
    (http://www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#oe2wm). From there, open Windows Mail
    and go to 'File|Export|Messages|Microsoft Exchange' to transfer messages.
    For contacts, 'File|Export|Windows Contacts|CSV', and when finished, open
    Outlook and go to 'File|Import and Export|Import from another program or
    file|Comma Separated Values'. Accounts will have to be re-entered.
