I am trying to export my messages from Outlook

I dunno but you might be better off just copying the outlook express data files from one computer to the next instead of trying to export.

Need to change my Outlook Express password but can't find out how

Call your Internet Service Provider.
They can change the password for your E-mail account on their mail-server.
Then, the next time that you open Outlook Express,
you'll get a chance to type your "new" password.

Outlook express - server pop needs to be changed. When I left embarq and went to Cablevision the server data did not change. E mail from computer generated from Outlook express does not generate.

You have to use your internet providers smpt-server.

This is something most internet providers forces us to do these days as a way to stop spam.

Either you contact your internet provider and ask for the correct smpt server, or you check their site. They usually have the right smpt server mentioned on their site.

How to receive e-mail at more than one p.c.

Generally users of POP3 email like to download messages to their PC and take them off the central server. But sometimes you'll want to leave them there so you can access them again. Like most other mail client applications, Outlook Express can be configured to leave messages on the server indefinitely or for a specified period of time.
How to Set Outlook Express To Leave Email Messages On The Server
Open Outlook Express
Select Tools/Accounts.
Click on the Mail tab, highlight YourAccount and click on the Properties button.
Click on the Advanced tab.
In the Delivery section, select the checkbox to Leave of copy of messages on server.
Select the appropriate checkbox to delete the messages from the server after a certain number of days or until the messages are deleted from the Deleted Items in Outlook Express. (Do also check you mailbox size from your internet provider, If you get a lot of emails you may fillup your mailbox fast)
For Outlook 2003
go to Tools > Options.
Select the Mail Setup tab from the Options dialog, and click E-mail Accounts.
Select the email account and click Next
Under the Delivery section of the Advanced tab, Checking the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox instructs Outlook 2003 to leave a copy of your emails on the server indefinitely
You will find the same options on all email software. Once you have Set this on all the computers, you will get the same mails on each one.
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!

Clicking outlook express hyperlinks gives not responding message

First download and reinstall Internet Explorer, that has Outlook Express built in. See Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If that does not work, do system restore to a date before you started having the problem. See System Restore on Windows XP.
