Change of System

My computer went to the computer graveyard in the sky this week. I have a new computer I’m setting up. How do I transfer my EM mail with as little grief as possible? I am moving to Windows 8.1 as well. 

Hello Alyson, I’m not quite sure what you’re suggesting, do you still have your old setup available? You can transfer your whole database from one computer to another which should allow you to start using the application as soon as you restore from the backup. To backup your old database, please navigate to File > Backup on your old computer, and save the backup file into your backup folder on the new one. Once you do so, you should only need to hit “Restore” under file on your new computer and all your previous data including your account setup or emails should be available in no-time.
