    How to save and restore emails in Outlook Express

    Hello to all you explain in a simple way how to save and then restore the Outlook Express email after the formatting of your operating system.

    Outlook Express, as the Microsoft Outlook, provides tools for backing up e-mail messages and subsequent recovery. There is an easier way to do the following email formatting of the operating system or replace the PC: just drag the email from the window of outlook express (by selecting all the message) in a specially created folder. By opening this directory will display a number of files in the icon is an envelope from the letter. To open the email, which includes attachments, simply double-click the file. After installing the operating system on new computers just drag the folder saved email (which has been copied to a CD / DVD or external drive) in the inbox of outlook express. In so doing restore all emails with the utmost simplicity and without having to follow lengthy procedures for data.

    for accounts you can save your address book by clicking at the top of the file, then click export and save to your desktop, then you put it where you want. To do it again the same thing, open the file from the phone book and go by reintroducing the directory where you saved them and restores them, do everything automatically outlook.

    The settings and accounts of the parameters of the post you must restore them manually.
