Hope someone can help out there, but the problem is this

My father-in-law works from home and aqquired a lot of emails with attachments that need backing up(1500+) I've managed to backup all the emails but it leaves the attachments out, what I'd like to know, is there a quick and easy way to save the whole lot in one go

For OE, find where the Message Store folder is,( go - Tools - Options - Maintenance - Store Folder.)

Then using Explorer (or whatever takes your fancy, eg Nero etc) copy the whole folder to your preffered media (CD-R is favourte).
