Can anyone help me in how to transfer (\"export\") all my mail folders from MS Outlook Express under Windows 98 SE from my old PC to the MS Outlook Express under Windows XP Professional on my new PC?

I succeeded transferring my Outlook files (.pst); but the folders did not come along.

File export Dec 18, 2002

Goto File>Import and Export>Export data to a file>personal files (.pst), click on the files you want to export, marque include subfiles>give the destination and name of the .pst file on your hard-disk and click \"Finish\". A .pst file will be created. Burn it on a CD or save it on a ZIP-drive (it will usually be bigger than 1.44MB). When you have installed XP you must import that .pst file.

- redefine this new path on the target computer.

The problem with this method is only the emails and their structure are exported, no rules,...

(2) Use a software (like
