Is there a neat and simple way to back-up my emails? I send and receive huge quantities through MSOutlook and save them in the directories, but can not find a way to SIMPLY save them to disk.

them to a personal folder file. Goto the file menu, choose import/export. Export to a file and choose personal foldere file .pst.

For example back up by month and if you ever need to refer back to a particaulr month import the relevant pst file which will show up in your outlook profile.

Install the Outlook back-up tool click here
and back them up to an external medium (USB pen drive, CD, etc).

Export to a .pst file you can just as easi;y drag and drop on to a pendrive for example or burn to disk.

some really excellent advice, thank you. I have now saved the emial files to disk, but before I delete the originals from Outlook, I want to check that I can re-open what I have saved and check that it formats back into Outlook ok.

I have tried it, but I get a notice that outlook can not open the file, because it is either in use or I don't have permission etc.

How do I check that it has worked?

have you backed them up?

Saved as a .pst file, as you suggested. Of course, I have yet to delete the emails in Outlook, so the saved data is a duplicate.

I have tried to open it straight from the disk, but access denied. I have tried import in Outlook and again, I don't have permission.

The way I save any important email at work is to open the email and go to File then Save as.... and save them as either an RTF or a Word doc file, it save messing around importing them when you just want to refer to them.
