Archiving Your Outlook Express Messages
If you have some really full Outlook Express folders that you'd like to empty out without losing the messages, you can use the program itself to save your messages. Just run Outlook Express and select the folder you want to save.
Now, click Create Mail and enter a name for your backup in the Subject line. Next, drag all the messages you want to save from the selected folder into the new mail message.
You can use Ctrl + A to select all the messages.
Dragging the messages to the new mail message will attach all the files to the new message. Choose File|Save As, locate a folder for your file and click Save.
Now, you can double-click your new file to read any of the saved messages.
