You can not transfer emails to PlusNet with outlook express, but you can send and receive emails from PlusNet, is that what you are wanting to do?  If Yes
Have a look at "Email Setup Guides"
Hope that helps

I think you could do it if you set up the new Plusnet account inside OE using IMAP. You'd then be able to copy all the emails in to the new mailbox which would then be synced with the Plusnet server.

Re: transfer outlook express emails to plusnet

I will assume your old emails have been downloaded onto your PC - that is usually the case - so you can see them when you open Outlook Express. Add a new account in OE, following the instructions in Midnight Caller's link. You should then see two accounts in the left hand pane in OE - your old one and the new one. You can leave them as they are, or just drag and drop emails or entire folders from the old account to the new one.
