    hi is there a program that i can use to backup outlook expresss. Doesnt have to be free but a shareware will be good enough as long as it does everything e.g. everything works but has 30day trial.

    i want to back up everything, mostly incoming outgoing, trash, bla bla u know what i mean. i tried this program called 'outlook express backup freebie" bit dodgy. doesnt do the job. anyone know of any other programs?

    thx

    There's no need for an extra software to save your e-mails, address book and accounts, 3 steps using only copy/paste:

    1- e-mails: save this folder C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxx\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\*.*

    To restore them (all e-mails/folders), file > import > messages > outlook express 6 > import mail from an OE6 store directory (give path to where you saved them);

    2- address book: save this file C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxx\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\xxx.wab

    To restore it, file > import > address book (give path to where you saved it);

    3- accounts: tools > accounts > choose account to be saved > export, you'll get an xxx.iaf file. Repeat the same operation with each accounts.

    To restore it/them: tools > accounts > import > give path to where you saved the xxx.iaf

    Et voila, you saved everything the surest way ;o)
