I recently had to re-formatt my laptop due to spyware, adware, viruses etc... however I didnt backup my emails as i was told the were stored on a server. Is this true and if so how can I retrieve them?

As Outlook Express will have downloaded the mail from the server and stored it on the PC, there's no way you can get at it. BT Yahoo may be able to access their archive, but I'm not sure if they'd do it, you can but ask.
