View Full Version : Outlook Express Backup

10-06-2002, 11:10 AM
Hi, I need to back up my Outlook Express address book as well as the inbox and the sentbox.

Can anyone tell me how to do this, preferrably to a CDRW, or can it be backed up into another part of the hard drive?

Your help is appreciated!
Regards, Lynda

From memory of outlook express..

Go to File
Import / Export
Highlight 'export to file'
Highlight 'Personal PST'
follow prompts to select address book, emails, etc.

Sometimes it will take folders but not contents,

Save it on your C:/drive

Burn it from there

later you can import it to any outlook or outlook express.

You will probably be asked for a password etc.

Have a look at http://www.inachis.com, burn the resulting file to cd.

Go to this excellent site for information on Outlook Express management.

The one I use and like can be found at www.Genie-soft.com.

I've used it for months now and think it's excellent.

I tried to backup my Outlook Express files the hard way: this is so much beeter.
