Hello,
Is there any way to forward all incoming email from an outlook express account? I will be traveling and then moving soon and want to start forwarding email to a yahoo account in order to access and store emails from the outlook express account.

That is an excellent question and yes it is easily done.
Open an email that is addressed to the account you wish to forward. from with in that email click on the Message tab and select Create Rules From Message. Make sure the eight check box in the first windows is checked "Where the message is from a specific Account".
In the second windows select "Forward to people". In the third window click on the "people" link and enter the Yahoo account you wish it forwarded to. It is that easy.
When creating a rule you can select as many option as you wish.
The only down side is if your computer loose power or the Outlook Express program is some how turned off you will not receive your email. I use message rules to receive my email on the road also, but I am seldom gone for more than 36 hrs. With that said it is a great tool.

Here is a Microsoft article you may fine relevent.
Good luck.

It might be easier to avoid using OE completely, if your E-mail service(s) have forwarding ability, then use that so the E-mail is forwarded from their server(s) to the Yahoo account.

While this is an option and it does work well for me, John's idea is perhaps a better solution to your needs. You may even want to use your services Web Mail and eliminate the Yahoo account from the process all together.
