    Look for a menu item that says 'Export". I use Outlook (not express) and it is an installable option.

    Export the emails/contact/info to a floppy, then you are ready.

    or just open your dir:
    C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{SOME-NUMBER}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    and copy your entire inbox folder directly.
