 Transferring 5.01 Outlook Express files to new machine running 6.0

I'm trying to transfer my e-mails from my old pc to my
new one.  I copied the mailbox.pst from my old machine to
the new one.
My old pc ran Win 95 using Outlook Express 5.01.  My new
pc is running XP using Outlook Express 6.  There isn't an
option to import Outlook Express 5 on the Import Messages
Tool, just OE 4 and OE 6.  How do I transfer the OE 5.01
folders and e-mail files to the new pc running OE 6?  

Please advise.

Thank you!

Rick

You don't want mailbox.pst, this file belongs to Exchange/Windows Messaging,
NOT Outlook Express.  Look here:

Outlook Express 5 and 6 use the same file types, use the OE6 setting when
doing your import.
