A friend 200 miles from me is at her father's house right now trying to set up his new Dell Win 7 desktop.

She wants to know how to:

1. Find his old OE emails on his old XP desktop's hard disk.

2. If she moves the old emails to his new desktop, what software would he need to read them? (OE won't work on Win7).

I don't remember if they are in .mbx files or .pst files but if you copy them to the new PC, there is a chance that you can read them.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Good point. As I said, I didn't remember.
