Move OutlookExpres6 to new machine


Is there a simple way to move my "entire" Outlook Express 6 data (messages, pab, folders, blocked senders, identities)from an NT4 platform to a Windows 2000 platform? They are networked together and I have the removeable drive on the W2000 platform mapped as a network drive on the NT4 platform.

Any help or a pointer to specific directions would be great. I've looked around quite a bit and can't find anything on point. The Microsoft instructions moved each piece one at a time (first you move the message, then you move the pab, then you move the folders, then you ..., then you repeat for each identity) and it just seems like there must be an easier way.

The OE6 on the NT platform has been in use for about 4 years. OE6 is installed on the W2000 platform but only has the welcome message from Microsoft and nothing else.

My advice is to install Microsoft Outlook,(which you already have if you have Microsoft Office) import ALL your OE bits & pieces & you will automatically create one large .PST file which you can copy and move to wherever.
