I'm using 2000pro and IE6 with all the updates. I need to clean off the harddrive and reload everything. I don't want to lose the data, so I need to locate where the emails are hiding and the address book info so I can off load & save until I get reloaded again. Can someone tell me where to look? The export feature in Outlook Express is no help at all.
Thanks, BuddyB

That was so simple I'm embarrassed! :rolleyes: In the process I found them the hard way, perusing c: in Win Explorer. I tried to execute an export under the "File" menu and nada. Now that you've shared this incite with me I'm wondering why they don't have all that in the same place. ;)
Thanks for your time.
