How to backup Outlook Express email folders and settings

  1. Mar 19, 2007 #1
    I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn't work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up... I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help?

    there are several files in an hidden application data.
    go to "Tools->options->Maintenance->Store Folder"
    find out where that folder is .

    usually in something like documents and settings->temporary data
    ->application data->outlookexpress...

    all else fails the files are extensioned .dbx and you can do a search in teh
    document and settings folders.
