Yes, your emails sent to your previous ISP address will still be available in Outlook Express.

The mails reside on your computer, not the ISP mail server, so they are not lost when you cancel service with an ISP.

You won't have to set up another account in Outlook Express for your new ISP mail.

All you have to do is change your current settings.

Open Outlook Express.

Tools/Accounts/Mail tab.

Highlight your account, then click Properties.

You should be able to make changes which will configure OE to work with your new ISP mail.

In order to change it, you will need the ISP server settings. See if the ISP has those settings online or call to find out what they are.
