and then copy them onto floppy; cd; zip drive or whatever. make a folder on your hard drive and copy them to it. If your individual files are too large to put on a floppy you can chop them up with a small prog such as file splitter.

Open Outlook Express, go to File > Export (choose to save as Text (CSV)), save them to floppy.

Insert the floppy in the laptop, open OE, go to File > Import.

The fact is, that whilst you can "do-it-yourself" - it's not as easy as falling off a log - and these programs should make it easy.

The one big thing you will need is a medium large enough to hold the files. Email archives can get very big - this means LOADS of floppy disks!
