Outlook Email Accounts



Does anyone know how to backup the email accounts in MS Outlook XP?

I can backup the PST files and the email rules, but can't see a easy way to backup the email accounts.

Many thanks for any help.
just do a export and choose one of the formats, it will export everything and if you ever lose stuff just do a import, works like a dream :)
If you dig around your application files and areas like that in your profile you should find something that will have all of the files. I believe that Outlook Express files are either *.dbx, *.mbx or *.ibx Try searching for those and hopefully you will find the right files. They will be named for each folder that you have in Outlook Express like Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items and so on.

Copy these to another folder and and then you have a backup of them. Copy them back to restore the files and the emails within.

Another way?

I'm not sure if this is what you were looking for, and i don't know if it works with Outlook XP.

Go to Tools -> Accounts, select the mail account you want to save and press the Export button on the right (if it's still there). It will be exported as a .iaf file. (1KB).

note: This will 'only' save password, username, pop/smtp servers etc.

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
