  1. I have a new computer and would like to transfer my outlook express files to it. The old drive that has the files is set up as a slave. Anyone that can please help?

    Easiest way is to go to and download one of the many file transfer programs they offer. Nearly all cost money, but they work for free for a week. They are rated so you can pick a decent one... they will automatically download all the related files to enable you to save them to disc... then will recover them on the new computer. Sorry I don't remember the names, but they will be in something like Mail Utilities... Also, there is a superb one on that costs $30, but is free for the first few days.

    OE files are located in:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Jeff\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{4049BA6C-A559-4750-9335-49BF0F9EC9FA}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    the blue items above will be different for your login and CLSID
