Hi All



I have quite a few emails regarding business which I need to keep. At present Im just storing them in various folders. However, Im concerne din the event of a crash. I dont know if OE itself can crash, and Id lose everything. Im also wondering if Im overloading OE as I read somewhere that you can. Also whe I close OE it asks me do I want to compact folders as this will save space.

So my questions are :

1 Is there a good and easy way to store my emails safely, and is it easy to "update" that, say, weekly? I have been able (though its not too easy) to transfer emails to a USB and back on to my reformatted laptop. Using the dbx files etc, but wouldnt that be a pain to regularly update?

2 Can you explain compacting folders, and how would it affect my emails?

3 Should I be looking at a different programme to do all this?

Many thanks

KC
