    Might be a helpful idea to tell us what email client you are using?

    It depends.

    If you are using Outlook Express and if you have the CD
    mounted and formatted, you can simply select the email
    messages you want to copy and drag them onto a CD folder.

    If the CD isn't mounted and formatted, you can drag email
    messages into a hard disk folder and then use your CD
    writing software to write the folder to CD.

    If, on the other hand, you want to back up your Outlook
    Express email folders, rather than take a copy of specific
    messages, then you can do a search for *.dbx on your hard
    disk and use your CD authoring software to copy ALL of them
    onto your CD.

    Of course, if you aren't using Outlook Express or want
    something different. the solutions will be different! :)

    For example, print out your email messages using very, very
    small fonts and then neatly cut them out and glue them to
    your CD. This will save your emails to CD, with the extra
    advantage that you will be able to read your saved email
    messsages whilst sitting in the bath, without the risk of
    electrocution.. :)

    ....and with no more than a cursory glance at the dead camel Palindrâ~»me
    decided it was time to put the World to rights with this little gem:

    Except from the possible (but highly unlikely) discharge of static between
    the slipcase and the disc.

    However there is the added chance of plughole blockage, and possible
    decapitation should things get mixed up when there is shampoo in the eyes.

    So if you MUST read small printed-out emails, always keep a wet rag handy
    for when you wash your hair.

    However, if you keep a bull in the bathroom, make sure that
    the rag is not red. If it is, or you are singularly
    unfortunate in finding yourself with a colour-blind bull,
    read out any email messages that you may have received from
    the government and it will recognise you as a kindred
    spirit. Don't overdo this and don't let it see a reflection
    of itself in the shiny CD - or it might get the idea you are
    either another male or, worse, a female.

    Palindr?me's reply is serious at first, before it just degenerates into

    All rags are red. It's just a fact of life. Except when they used to be
    men's underwear, in which case they are grey. Which sets up an interesting
    dilemma - do you really want a pair of old grey pants in your batheroom ?

    Bulls are rarely colourblind. Those that are can be distinguished by the
    orange shirts and green hats they tend to wear.

    Nothing worse than a female when you have a bull and a red rag in a
    bathroom.

    Why I wrote to the group looking for advice and help was because I don't
    know very much about computers and yes I know he was serious at first with
    his advice but then I started to wonder how to do as he said. then I thought
    he was starting to laugh at me for asking such a question.

    All I can say is that I am sorry. but you must realize it is not much fun
    for someone like myself who is just starting out.

    You misunderstand. First you get the right answers, then we rip each other
    to shreds ;-)

    Go for it :)

    Seriously, most (95%) of the advice given is good, but always get a few
    different pointers and read their /other/ replies to see if they get slagged
    off for being dumb ;-)

    No I wasn't laughing at you - I was trying to get you to
    laugh with me. :) (Or at me... :) )

    Your original posting was a little ambiguous as I couldn't
    tell if you were interested in taking copies of particular
    emails or of doing a backup. The more you write about what
    you are trying to do, the easier it is to provide suggestions.

    Computers should be fun! They do become much more fun when
    you have a good backup and restore strategy that you know
    will allow you to recover from any mistakes you might make
    or anything that may go wrong that isn't your fault.
    Otherwise, it is like playing dodgems with a big steel spike
    coming out of the steering wheel and no lap-strap. With it,
    you can have a go and, if it all goes crumbles, laugh,
    restore the backup and remember not to do THAT again..

    If you are getting around to backing up your email, then you
    are doing heaps, heaps better than most!

    If you want a more expanded description of what to do, then
    just ask - but you will need to supply a lot more details of
    what hardware and software you have and try to say exactly
    what you are trying to achieve.
