Could someone please tell me how to save a folder of emails in Outlook Express 5 to a CD.

You can save the emails using either the dbx files or eml files. With dbx though you would need to import them back into OE to once again read them.
What we do is simply highlight the message>file>save as> navigate to a folder set up for saving the emails eg(C:/ SavedEmails). When we burn the CD we simply drag and drop that folder from the harddrive to the burner.
Hope that helps

Helo John,

Another way is to copy your C:\windows\Application data folder to cdrw this folder not only contains your e-mail files it also contains your address book, office templates,psp templates etc and any web wallpapers you may have downloaded.
This is a 'must backup' for anyone contemplating reloading their system.
