    Backing up Messages (Netscape Communicator 4.7*)

    I need to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows. Although I now use Outlook Express, I still have Netscape on the computer with a whole bunch of messages I want to save. I am backing up my files to a CD but everytime I get to Netcape I get a message that the mail folder is too large to back up on the CD. Does anyone know a fast easy way to do this as this is an URGENT need.

    Hi CD:
    Instead of trying to back up the entire mail folder, back up each one separately. i.e. inside the <username>/mail folder, you'll find Inbox, Sent, etc.. There will be one without an .snm extension. Just back those up separately; you don't need the ones with the .snm extension.

    Hope this helps.
