Backing up all email folders in Outlook Express

  urale 23:33 05 Jan 2008

How do I back up my email folders (in box, sent box etc) in Outlook Express with their content?

I use XP Home Edn as the operating system.

I would like to back up to USB memo stick.

This programme click here will also aid in saving and restoring Outlook Express mail and settings.

In OE, goto Tools, Options, Maintenance Tab and click on Store Folder. This will then show you where your mail folders are stored. Just back-up (e.g. dragondrop) all of the files (should just be .dbx files) in this folder.
