email trouble

On my PC, Win ME and outlook express, when I drag emails from outlook to a different folder for storage, they change to a word document, and when opened, are full of text, not making sense, with the message at the bottom. I dont think its always been like this, the emails used to open and look as they did in Outlook. Any advice on how to correct this, please?

You mean you drag the emails between folders in Outlook Express, or into Explorer folders? The latter will be converted to .eml files. If they association has been altered, hold shift, right click and Email (.eml) file, select Open With, scroll through the list for Outlook Express or locate `Program Files/Outlook Express/MSIMN.exe` and select it to make OE open the files itself.
