    Just bought a new laptop (notebook). How can I import my email account
    settings from outlook express in (believe it or not) windows millenium on a
    desktop to windows mail vista sp1 on my laptop.
    Would I need a cable to connect both computers or it it possible to go
    through the dsl modem, they are both connected to ?
    After reading some of the posts about windows mail, I'm not that eager to
    use it !!!
    I do prefer outlook express even to outlook which I also have. Why do
    microsoft pass by good solid programs like outlook express and not give you
    the choice in windows vista.

    Any ideas would be appreciated . . .

  2. In OE go to Tools | Accounts and export the accounts.
    Move the IAF files to your Vista Documents folder and use WinMail's Tools
    Accounts to import from the IAF files.
