Default Backup Outlook Express

Few people know how to backup messages, settings, address books or rules in Outlook Express. How would you feel if one day you lost all your messages and contact details but had no backup? In addition, there may come a time when you want to move your Outlook Express files and settings to another computer (a common occurrence when upgrading from Windows 95 or 98 to Windows XP). There is no simple button in Outlook Express to backup files, but there is a free program.

OE Backup will backup (and restore) all your Outlook Express settings and messages. The processes are managed with a few clicks of the mouse. Importantly, the program doesn't use specialised file formats (some backup programs require you to use the exact same software to restore files). This means you have the choice to use the program to restore you backup, or do it manually without the program.

Hello,

Great link and I'll definitely give it a go the next time I need to move somebody's Outlook Express.

Gotta be quicker than exporting all their account details as an *.iaf, their dial-up details as an *.ins and then searching for the *.idx files so you know which folder to drag and drop.


Regards

I use the Genie Soft offering myself. It's very good indeed, but it's not free.
