I am moving everything to a newer computer, and I'm not sure how to go about
it with Outlook Express and all my email and email folders. I tried copying
the old Identity to the new computer, putting it in Docs & Settings right
next to the new Identity. But so far it isn't showing up in Outlook Express
when I try to Manage and Switch Identities. Is there a correct way to do
this?

I have the two computers hooked up via a LAN so it is easy to copy files
back and forth.

File, Import, Messages, OE6, select other store folder, browse to the
location of the old Identity files.

Ron, will this also import all the folders that the messages are stored in?

You select which folders to import.
Folders of the same name, Inbox, Sent items, Drafts, Deleted items, and user
created folders will put the messages in folders of the same name. Imported
folders that have unique names will be added as unique named folders.
For folders to import, folders.dbx must be included.
