We currently have a desktop that is running on Windows Vista and the mother in law has just given us a year old laptop with Windows 7 on. How do I move/copy my windows mail account and all its contents onto the laptop?? Everything I have read to advise on this so far just seems really long winded and I'm sure there must be a quick way to do it?? Can anyone help step by step??

Many thanks in advance

Windows Mail is not web based it is similar to Outlook Express. Win7 uses Windows Live Mail which personally I do not like. Why M$ have to keep changing software is as far as I am concerned a pain in the butt. If some people like Live Mail etc. OK but why can't they let you download a previous version if that is your choice.
