    save email messages (WinXp Home Ed SP2)

    I am going to upgrade to WindowsXP Pro and intend to reformat my computer and do a clean install.
    I know how to export my email addresses but would like to know how I can save my email messages.

    If you are using Outlook Express, you can get a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> version of "Outlook Express Email Extractor Pro"

    The only limitation to the free version is that it will only extract messages that are up to 4k in size. If you have larger you have to buy the registered version.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    There is a version for Outlook and Eudora at the same site.

    Thanks to those that replied,
    I manaaged to find out what I wanted. I went to:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/270670
    and found the article ' How to back up and recover Outlook Express data '
    It worked fine.
    Cheers,
