    Hey all,

    Is there any program that will backup your Hotmail email into structured folders and with nice filenames so I could find an email in a glance??

    At the moment I manually backup my Hotmail by using Outlook Express but the filenames are that nice or organised.

    If you are using OE, just move all the emails from your hotmail folder into the "Local" folder of the same name (i.e. - Inbox to Inbox). This will also prevent you from going over your storage limit on hotmail.

    I use OE and I have created subfolders under the Inbox of OE such as HP Newsgram, WinXPNews, Canon, Symantec, my favorite - "Keepers" and others!

    Once I check out the emails in Hotmail, I right click to hilight the email, select move to folder, select the folder I want in OE and move it.

    As morpheus2k said - saves on the storage limit in hotmail and also since I usually backup my OE twice a month, by moving hotmails to OE folders also backsup the hotmails I want to keep!
