    I am about to reformat my hard drive and install a fresh version of Widows XP up until now I have been using MS Office 2007. On my new install I will be using Outlook Express. I have several dozen saved emails I need to keep. I understand Office 2007 will save them as a PST file but I don't think Outlook express will be able to re open them, Any suggestions?
    TIA

    Outlook Express can import Outlook messages.
