Hello All

I am in the process of backing up my computer and would like to know how I can transfer all of my e-mails and e-mail addresses onto a disc. I am running XP and working with Outlook 2000.
Any help would be great thanks.

I drill down into Local Disk (C:)/Documents and Settings/(My Name)/Local Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook/ (Note you need to be showing Hidden Files under the Folder Options/View checklist).
Inside the Outlook folder you'll find the Outlook.pst file. If you burn that to your CD, you can use the saved file for backup or to replace the Outlook data file on another computer.
