outlook express copy dbx files to new pc with xp

  syd sprout 18:33 12 Jan 05

I am trying to copy my dbx files (inbox etc) from my dell pc running windows me to a new laptop running windows xp.
the folder destination is documents & settings/alan/local settings/application data.
problem is i cannot find this folder on the laptop. Does xp hide some of the files?
Anyone know how i can transfer this information across?

These files are not created until you set up an account.

Once you have done this you should create folders with the same name as the ones you are going to transfer.

With this done close OE and navigate to the Outlook Express folder as you have descibed above. ie documents & settings/alan/local settings/application data

Then delete the existing folders and then copy over the other ones.
