I bought a new Vista Machine. My wife's old computer has Outlook 2003
installed which my wife uses for her email. Can I import the Contact List
and the email to the new machine?

The easiest way is to install Outlook 2003 on the Vista machine, copy the
..pst file over, and open the .pst file in Outlook. Then keep using Outlook
2003, as it's better than Windows Mail.

If you want to use Windows Mail, or Windows Live Mail, open one of them and
go to
File - Import

Export it as a CSV file, Windows Contacts can import that.
