Would anyone know...

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> Where Outlook Express stores emails? I’m getting a new comp tomorrow, and I want to salvage some very important emails. Like my collection of the staffers’ beautiful girlfriends.

I think it stores it on the internet, have your mom turn the internet back on, and try it.

File -> Import and Export

Then choose Export to a file, and then to a personal folder file (*.pst).

Then choose your inbox. Save it somewhere, then when you want, import it back.

<Img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> Well, that didn’t work. I got all kinds of crazy error messages, so I just saved the emails as seperate .eml files. Knowing where they’re normally are stores would help tough, since OE only wants to import from other programs.

Sorry, I was thinking about MO rather than OE. I use MO since it has a lot more functions, in such a way it’s pratically my secretary. OE is really different in some parts and this is one of them.

It should go File -> export -> messages. The rest explains itself.

If you try importing messages it will show you where it stores them. It goes like this:

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities{there should be a serial number here}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\
