Outlook stores emails in .pst files. You can transfer them on a network by using windows explorer to find:

C:\Documents and Settings\*username*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Right-clicking on the folder and selecting share

Then use the target computer on your network to access that folder, copy the folder contents (Outlook.pst and archive.pst), and then paste them to the appropriate folder on the target computer.

You can't just copy them to the new computer, you need to Import them into Outlook.
