I finally broke down and purchased a new laptop. No problem moving all my pictures and saved documents through network from old to new :tazz:

:) ... but I can't figure out how to move Outlook Express address book and mail boxes (i.e. in box, sent box, delete box) to the new computer.

:) To make matters worse... I started out using Outlook Express on my new laptop, but when I later installed MS Office, the default mail changed to the full version Outlook. I didn't notice this until after receiving a boat-load of emails. No problem changing default back to Outlook Express... but how can I move all the received mail to my Express In-box?

You can export a PST from outlook and the old laptop's OE and import the PST into OE on the new system but I'd recommend using a real email client such as Thunderbird instead. Sorry, I don't have OE installed (yuck) or I'd give you exact steps.
