Outlook Express 6

Using OE6 on a W98 pc ....

1. The left-hand panel of the opening screen shows the number of messages in my Incoming and Deleted bins but not in my Sent bin. Is there something I can do to have that number shown as well?

2. To save memory space, I am considering copying all of (about 5000) messages in my Deleted bin to a CD and then permanently erasing the Deleted bin. What is the best way to transfer these files to a CD in such a way that I can recover any of them if I ever have to? Do I just copy sentmail.dbx to the CD, or do I have to use the export function of OE?

Thanks. I had not understood that. Is there ANY way to know how many Sent messages I have in the Sent bin?

(NT) Set them all to unread?
