Hi

Can anyone help me?

I'd like to back up all my emails from Outlook onto disc using Nero.

How do I do it? Step by step.

Thanks in advance.

I suggest that the easiest way is to search Windows Explorer for files *.dbx. When you find them, copy them all to the cd using Nero. Another hint that you might find useful is that if you have a second hard drive or partition, then in Outlook Express, click Tools - Options - Maintenance - Store Folder. Then make your store folder somewhere on the second drive or partition. It will then be easy to back up. Also if you download DBXtract click here and put it into a folder, it could be the same one as your new store folder, you will be able to view your e-mails without reloading them into Outlook Express. A note of caution - I don't think attachments will be backed up with the e-mails.

Sorry, I've just reread your posting and see that its Outlook e-mails you want to back up. I can't find any free utilities for that, only loads of paid-for ones.
