How to Move Outlook Express emails to New Computer?

I have emails stored in Outlook Express on an old desktop computer. I want to get rid of the computer but before doing so I need to retrieve documents, photos and emails. I can just about figure out how to move the docs and photos to a memory stick but the thought of moving the outlook express emails fills me with dread. I never could figure out how to backup Outlook Express emails and once lost all my emails when the computer crashed.
The system on my new laptop doesn't support Outlook Express. I'm hoping some kind person(s) here can give me a dummy's guide to moving my emails.
I'm a techno idiot whose understanding of abbreviated terms starts and ends with "OS = Operating System" and "LOL = Laughs out Loud" so simple language using whole words would be very much appreciated.
The Old computer used Windows XP (I think) and the new one uses Windows 7 or 8 (not sure which).
