[Transfer Windows Mail emails from old drive to new]

Hi, can anyone help? I am using a sata cable to transfer my old
hard drive to my new computer... But I can't find the folders with my old emails. I am using "Windows Mail" not Outlook program. Where should I look, for the files what format are they in?

Thanks for the help

You can also go to (file)(export)(Messages) in Windows Mail and export to your new drive either in the new windows mail or elsewhere. If not to the WMail folder, open the new WMail(file)(import)(messages) and browse to the location you saved them to.

When I found this method I kicked myself for doing it the hard way for so many times.
