    Default backup email account settings?

    I have outlook 2002 and would like to know how to back up the email account settings, i.e. 'user information, login information and server information'.

    Default Re: backup email account settings?

    You already know your email address, account name and password
    The only other things you need are the incoming and outgoing mail server addresses. Why not record those and you have everything.

    You can do this if you really want to.

    Click Tools| Accounts, select the account to backup, then click the Export button. This will store the account's settings in a *.iaf file at the location you specify. You can later import any *.iaf file by clicking the Import button. Your account password is stored in encrypted form in the *.iaf file.
