Microsoft Outlook ???

I want to use all the stuff in my current email mailbox (and back it up) on another confuser. I have at least a gazillion email addresses, and almost that many important messages. Iím thinking about exporting all my outlook files to excel, saving it to CD, and then import them on the other system. Does anyone have any other ideas to do this? I want the easiest way to get this done.

you want all your messages on another computer, or on another email client? I'm a little confused. I would be easy to move your info to another computer with an outlook account.

If you're going from Outlook to Outlook:

Outloook data is stored in a *.pst file. Normally it's named Outlook.pst and you might have an Archive.pst. Different versions of Outlook store these files in different places. Easiest is to open Microsoft Windows Explorer and search for *.pst. These are the files you're interested in. Save them, copy them to a new machine.

On the new machine you can specify in outlook which data files to use. You can also do this using the Mail applet in Control Panel. You can have more than one .pst file active at a time, you'll have more than one set of Personal Folders in Outlook.

Let me know if you need more info...

Outlook provides an easy way to back this stuff up. Simply go to File->Import and Export and choose export to a file. Then choose the .pst file... then click on your inbox. You MIGHT have to export multiple psts for your contacts and stuff but you might be able to get them all in one... dunno.
