You need to save all the settings from laptop 1 and transfer to an external flash drive - then reinstate on laptop 2 using the following guide.

As per Sea Urchin - Save all your settings from Laptop 1 (ie:export your contacts/messages) to external flash drive - then on Laptop 2 with Incredimail on go to File - Import & Export - Import messages/Import Contacts - select an email program to import from.

You won't lose anything by trying this as you are only copying your data from Laptop 1 to Laptop 2 via the external flash drive.

I should have added that I can't confirm that this will work with Windows Mail (that which you are transferring from) as I have never had or use Windows Mail.
