Backing Up Mail from Outlook Express

I'm trying to back up my mail from Outlook Express. I'm using XP and have all the latest updates. When I try to export I get an error message "Error occurred initializing MAPI". I've tried backing up in safe mode with the same result. Any ideas anyone.

Open Win Explorer>>Tools>>Folder Options>>View then check Show system files and Folders. Then click ok and close.

In Win Explorer open the tree Documents and Settings>>Your Name>>Local Settings>>Application Data>>Identities>>Folder with all numbers>>microsoft>>Outlook Express

On the right pane back up any and all folders with the emails you you want to save..

To restore just do the same in reverse..
