Exporting Outlook Express

What would be the best way of saving the Contents of Outlook Express Folders to a Zip Drive - I'm sure there must be a quicker way than selecting and copying.

edit > select all > copy then paste into zip folder.


File >import and export > choose your poison and click the button

Search your old computer for files ending .dbx. These are your emails. There should be Inbox.dbx, Outbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc. There must also be Folders.dbx, this is the data telling OE how the emails are compressed.

Save all these dbx files, then you can either import them into OE on your new computer, or overwrite the files of the same name in the new computer.

Look for a file called (name).wab, this is your address book, and a folder called Favorites. Save these and either import or overwrite to transfer them.
