    I am curious if there is a way to export a person email account settings for Outlook 2002 into a file so then it can be imported back into Outlook 2002. I am going to reformat and reinstall Win XP and the whole # ! and I have 6 different email account settings in there. It would be nice to just import the settings and be done with it... ??

    Backing up the email is not the problem... I want to back up and be able to restore the email settings... ie Username, password, inbound and outbound mail servers etc.

    For transfering the account settings (e.g. username/password/server info) you could try to use the Windows XP Util 'Files and Settings Transfer Wizard' which should be located at the 'accessories\system tools' Start Menu...

    I've not actualy used this myself... But it should (if i believe the MS sell-talk) do what you want. :)

    nope... I checked both suggestions and neither will let me export the email account settings.
    I have 7 different emal account in Outlook 2002. I know Outlook Express will let me export and import the account settings. Its weird, I think there has to be a way. :(
