Windows 7: Windows Easy Transfer & Outlook Express

Windows Easy Transfer & Outlook Express

My mom just bought a new desktop computer (Windows 7, 64 Bit) so I plan to use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer her files from her old XP computer.

Since she always used Outlook Express on her old computer will all her email files transfer over to Windows 7 "Windows Mail" or "Windows Live Mail" without any issues?

Yeah I know to use WET but I was wanting to know if transferring Outlook Express mail files like the Inbox contents would transfer over to say Windows Live Mail?

It should. That does not mean it will. You (and your mother) should back up your WAB, Favorites (bookmarks) and Documents regularly. Back them up on an external drive for safe keeping and transporting.

This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background. My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty. ...
