Question Importing Outlook Express Emails

Hello everyone, thank you for all your support in the past. I have forgotten about Linux for the past few months as school has taken all of my time, but I am ready to come back, delete my old install (I think it is messed up) and start over again with Linux. I have downloaded Slackware 9.0 and purchased another hard drive and I think I am all set. I have two quick questions to run by you as I go through and install again. I will put them in separate posts since they are not related.

I currently use Outlook Express in Windows to work with my Yahoo! email account (POP3). I have accumulated over 1100 emails in my Inbox alone, and I would very much like to be able to keep these if possible as I begin using Linux for day-to-day tasks. First, what email program will I be using or do you suggest I use? (I am planning on using Slack 9.0 and Fluxbox, but this may change.) Second, do you know if it is possible (or can you recommend any reading on the subject) to import/transfer all of my current Outlook Express emails into the other program to use in Linux?

I appreciate your help in advance,
