Dear CNET members,
Every week, I received a huge number of technical questions from you, and I thank you for all of them. While all of the submissions are wonderful, I encourage those of you who are participating in this newsletter to check out our Q&A guidelines before you send a question or an answer to me. This will not only help me tremendously in deciding which questions to present to you, but it will also help in making my final decisions on the answers each week. Just remember, the more details you can provide me, the better. Thank you! Now let's tackle Mary's question about exporting and importing those e-mails she has from work to home.

If anyone out there has any other recommendations--whether it be a software utility or a method of importing or exporting e-mails in Outlook--please join us and share. We'd all appreciate this information!

RAM vs. processor
Over time, when your computer starts to run noticeably slower, it may be time to upgrade your hardware components, such as adding more RAM or upgrading your computer's processor.
