I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn't work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up... I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help?

outlook emails are stored at

c:\documents and settings\"your account"\local settings\Application Data\identities\"some long number"\microsoft\outlook express

you need to be able to hidden files

you can export your email account by going to outlook express --> tools --> accounts --> mail --> export

you can export you addys by going outlook express --> file -->export --> address book --> text file


re-import your eamil msg's by going outlook express --> file -->import --> messages --> ie6 --> from a store --> browse to your saved folder


you can import your email account by going to outlook express --> tools --> accounts --> mail --> import --> your file

you can import you addys by going outlook express --> file -->import --> other address book --> text file --> browse to your file

$20 for software that doesn't do much. dry.gif

I'd rather save the cash and do it manually. A few more mouse clicks, but it's free.
