I have never used it but will find it for you.
EDIT: It is called KLS mail backup
Thank you for your prompt reply, essenbe. I notice that I have the option to export both messages and accounts. I assume that I'll need to export both. Also, with the Microsoft based accounts the additional personal folders I have created for those accounts are always recreated whenever I add Windows Live Mail to a different computer and then add email accounts; however, my two sbcglobal.net accounts don't retain personally added folders and are not there when I add my sbcglobal.net accounts to a different computer. The additional folders I use are Receipts, Stored Messages, etc, etc, etc.
By the way, I like the "be kind to elders" below your display name. It seems that being kind to elders, compassion, empathy, sympathy, loyalty and altruism are, for the most part, lacking in our newest generation of children and young adults.
