Back up E-mails

  Macnut 11:55 23 Aug 05

I use Microsoft Outlook for my e-mails (Windows XP)
I would like to back up my e-mails to DVD on a regular basis.
Does anyone know where they are kept on the hard disc?
Thanks Macnut

If Outlook then they are saved in a file called *.pst

* means username

and pst is the extension.

copy this and back it up.

The easiest way is to create a folder on your hard drive.Open both outlook and the folder. Highlight the emails you want to keep and drag to the folder. They are saved as *.eml files, which can then be stored on amy medium you like. The files when opened will open in the outlook program.
