outlook express

I need to copy a whole bunch of emails currently in my outlook express file on to a memory stick.

I seem to be able to do them individually by 'highlighting the email, file, then save as' but when I highlight more than one message the 'save as' is no longer available.

Any ideas??

From within Oulook Express click on tools,options,maintenance,store folder this will give you your location of your email folders. Copy and paste this into the address bar of internet explorer and you can then save your files to the memory stick.
