    Outlook express folders are stored here:

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{4FB94302-9A43-4DA6-8E66-C5C16A767EF3}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    you will recognize the folders names, that ID CLSID might be different, I don't remember. They have a *.dbx extension, just save them to disk or CD and import them after a reinstall.
