kakworm in mail folder

Hi all,
I have discovered the vbs-kakworm in a mail folder and can not delete it without deleting the mail folder.
Unfortunately i can not delete this folder as it contains important messages.
Is there any way i can save the mail and remove the worm?
Win 98 SE - - using outlook express 6

First of all, backup the mail folder to somewhere safe. Then open each message to see which one has the virus in it (delete any from unknown sources). If anything goes wrong, restore a copy from the backup and start again.

Yes, if a message has a virus in it, then you will have to delete the message. You can save whatever text is in it if it is of value to you.
