Open with notebook?

  Newuser2533 21:02 11 Oct 2003

Computer PC Windows 98, went in for upgrade. Drive backed up onto other hard drive.
Lost all addresses and saved e-mails.
Found addresses and pasted them into outlook express, no problem. Located all e-mail folders and when asked to choose what to open them with, I choose notebook. I ended up with a lot of strange signs, little squares and some clear words.
Obviously the information is there but I opened it with the wrong thing.
How can I get around this please and open them properly.

right click choose open with/choose program/browse/outlook express and tick always use this program.

You will never know how grateful I am for the advice.

Thank you again
