[OLEXP] OE on XP to WLM on W7

Ok, new build, can't afford Office so will be using Windows Live Mail instead of Outlook.

I know you can't go right from my version of Outlook to WLM so I've dumped everything into OE.

What file(s) do I need to copy my email and settings onto a flash drive to import everything onto the new build?

Have you looked into Open Office as a replacement for MS Office, and Mozilla Thunderbird as a replacement for MS Outlook?

I'm going to use OpenOffice, but I really don't like Thunderbird so I'm stuck with WLM (I prefer OE above all others I've used).

Slightly off topic, but check with your employer Sweet Witch See Profile and see if they have a code for the Microsoft Home Use Program which would get you the whole Office suite sans Project & Visio for $10.

If your Employer has Corporate-wide licenses for MS Windows/Office products, then the MS HUP program should be available through your Company's HR Dept...

Even MS Project and Visio may be available for under $25/ea. if qualified...

(And naturally, I Totally brainfarted on that aspect...)

Unfortunately my employer has no such license, and no Fairy Godmother/Godfather in sight.
