I dunno if this stuff helps....
outlook express usually stores your mails in a path like this:
"C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\IDENTITIES\{REG-KEY}\MICROSOFT\", you could just backup your files there and then import them later. Problem is if you have multiple users on you oulook so you'd have multiple reg-keys, and you'd have to figure out which one is your's.. :eek: I think address books are stored as ".WAB" files... you could try searching for your's then backing it up.. if not, then just export the address book as a ".WAB" file then import it again later:D

create a dummy identity and copy all of your mail-files to the directory of the new one, if it works, then you should be able to look at all your e-mails using the dummy identity....:D.

P.S. if you're upgrading to a newer OE version, then dont 4get to import your old mails instead of just copying them over the new one's..., just a precaution... u never know....

Betamax - The export feature on OE5 just exports them to Outlook 5.5, not to any other file :(

Oops my bad. I've only ever used the address export so I assumed that the messages was the same. Anyways the address one can be exported as a text file and imported again. That will easily fit on a floppy. Just goto File ->export-> address book and select text file. To import it again file->import->other addess book and choose text file as the filetype.

As for messages now that I look closer you can export them as html files using file->save as and changing the files of type from .eml to.html.

Why not just do a save as ...? Then that way you will have copies of each mail ... course I do this for important e-mails. Doing that 400 times could become pretty boring :D
