When I want to back up may email folder ONLY.. (without the rules etc.)
I just copy the outlook express folder...
What and Where??
Go to Tools, Options, Maintenance, 'Click' Store Folders .. copy or right down the folder location ..
Go to that location and copy .. the folder 'outlook express' .. --
-- To use it on other computer, Place the folder somewhere easy to find (I would create a folder 'MAIL' and put it in My Document folder, and put the outlook express folder in it), then go to Tools, Options, Maintenance, 'Click' Store Folders and CHANGE the location..
To back up an address book, just open it and export the .WAB files
To back up your account, just click that account and export..
to back up the rules, you have to play with the registry, for this .. look for 'How To" in microsoft knowledgebased.
I understand that to backup my Folders in Outlook Express that I follow a path as follows:
Tools / Options / Maintenance / Store Folders / File / Import - Export Messages.
However, when I insert my burned disc with these folders on I see 18 folders - all contaning many emails. The file ending is wps.
How do I open these folders ?
I found W98 so simple to carry this out, but not on XP.
