Outlook Express e-mail files

  gcha 18:16 11 Jan 05

A simple problem! For various resons I need to re -install Outlook Express but don't want to loose my existing e-mails. Where are they stored? Can I move them to a new folder and then re-instate them?

If you look in Tools/Options.../Maintenance you will see a button marked 'store folder'. This is where your messages are. If you copy it to somewhere safe, reinstall OE and then find the location for the new file, replace it with the old saved one. Alternatively tell the new installation where you have saved the old one by using the 'change' option in the store location.
