If you look at the menu under file you'll see an option for file export of both messages and your adresses. For precise instructions the help file in Outlook Express will walk you thru the process. Just select you own destination - I suggest the desktop an then move it to where you want it after you complete the process. Most alternate email programs can directly access Outlook's data and import it without using Outlook's export facility.
I want to copy and transfer Outlook Express data to another computer, but don't know where to find the file.
