To make a backup copy of your Outlook Express e-mail message folder, follow
these steps:

1. Start Outlook Express.
2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3. On the Maintenance tab, click the Store Folder button, this will show to
the default location of where your Outlook Express data is stored. Write
this down.
4. Open the Windows Explorer program and browse to the Default location that
you wrote down.
5. Right click on the default folder (Outlook Express), and left click the
option to Copy it.
6. Paste the folder into another folder location. I recommend creating a
c:\Backup folder and pasting it there. You can also paste it to the D:
drive, or a zip drive, or the CDRW drive.
