Outlook has the ability to import Outlook Express email have you tried that? –  Ramhound May 1 '13 at 19:15

1) Outlook will happily import Outlook Express data, which is typically located in C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

2) The exact way to get there depends on which version of Outlook you're using, but here's the general idea:

  1. Tools
  2. Accounts
  3. Double-click on your account
  4. Advanced tab
  5. Check all three boxes at the bottom

This applies to Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail.

2) How do I set up to receive all emails on multiple computers?

Depending on the provider, ie Gmail, Hotmail ect...

Check the option to LEAVE a copy of the email on the server.

That way you can receive it on any computer and as many times as you wish.

If you are like me, and handle "gzilions" of emails.

I advice you to also check the Delete from server when deleted in my local email. That way you will prevent running out of space on the server.
