My wife just got a new laptop running Windows 8.1. She has been using a 12+ year old computer (Windows XP) with Outlook Express computer based mail and has quite a list of files, letters, receipts, etc in that Outlook Express computer based mail client which is now defunct.
Her question: What is the easiest way to copy and move all this mail and the folders containing some mail into a mail ap in Windows 8.1? (Windows Live, Outlook, Thunderbird???)
We do not anticipate problems moving other files as we do have a terrabyte external HDD, but from previous experiences in computer hardware upgrades, Outlook Express seems to be a different beastie and requires special handling.
Thank you for any suggestions and advice. Her 12 year old computer is nearly on life support.
