Exporting email/contact files to CD then importing to new computer

I am trying to locate .pst files on a computer using XP 
Home operating system so that I can move them to a new 
computer.  The files don't seem to exist.  What is the 
procedure for moving old email files and contact lists to 
my new computer?

The .pst files are hidden by default. In a window, you need
to go into the Tools menu to Folder Options. On the View
tab, make sure you check the radio button to Show hidden
files and folders. You may also have to uncheck the
checkbox that says Hide protected operating system files
(not sure about that though).

Contacts export display X400 not SMTP
Hi all, I'm not sure if this behavior is by default or not, but when my users try to export their contacts to an Excel file, any internal (domain) contacts show the X400 address rather than the SMTP address.

Sending Email from Work to Home
This situation that I am about to describe just started on Monday. Whenever I am at work I hit my home ISP POP3 server to retrieve my emails at work. People can send me emails from the office or anywhere else and I have no problems getting them at work.

How do I email a hyperlink to a program file with a website as a parameter
