Howdy all, My old computer (Windows 98) died the other day after 7 years of use, due to a problem on the system board. I was able to salvage data from the hard drive, and have it transferred to a portable USB drive, so no data has been lost (Thankfully). I now have a new computer up and running (Windows XP Home) ,and would like to set up Microsoft Outlook Express to get to my and my spouses email with Road runner. I have the XP migration tool, but it is intended for transferring files from one working machine to another... and as my old machine is no longer working, I cant use the migration tool in that way... which leaves me with the possibility of migrating email files and address books manually for my accounts. Does anyone have any experience with this type of manual migration ? I have the usb drive available to connect to the new machine, so the files are technically available. Frankly this is a little above my comfort level, and would appreciate any advice or pointers. Most of the web sites that deal with migration refer to seprate computers. Many thanks for any assistance.
