Specs: Windows 7
I used Easy Transfer cable to move files from old XP computer to new W7 computer, but email folders and contacts didn't transfer. Any ideas how to do this? I have new, identical accounts (3) set up on new computer.

Depends which email program you are using on the machines. With Outlook you need to copy a single .pst file, with Outlook Express you need to export your address book and then copy all of the contents of the store folder. With Windows Live Mail, on Win7 you then need to import your address book and the message folders.
If you're using Thunderbird then I don't know I'm afraid.

Did you use the Migration Wizard? Start, type Migrate, and take it from there.
