Do a search for .dbx files. That is the file type for Outlook Express e-mail stores.

If you have a separate drive/partition, change the store directory to a folder on the other drive/partition. Then backing up won't be an issue, all you'll have to do is change the directory to where you saved everything after each Windows install and it will automatically put everything back. I'm not at home atm, but if I recall correctly, it is Tools->Options->Maintenance->Store Directory.

You can also use the export option under File->Export (you can also back up your address book) and then obiously you would use import to bring them back after install.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
