    I have Win 98 with OE6

    Want to reinstall windows but want to keep all my OE folders, messages and
    address book, i.e. start with my internet exactly where I left off before.
    What's the easiest way to do this? I am not too technical so need some
    simple clear advice. I have hundreds of emails in different folders I want
    to keep and not have to start from scratch.

    Thanks

    A Windows reinstall "over the top" (without formatting) won't change any
    of your other stuff.

    There are websites that tell you how to do this manually, and there
    are several programs out there that will do it for you. I can tell you
    that, after data loss using the manual method, I have used this
    easy-as-pie program: http://www.inachis.com/products/index.htm
    for about 2.5 years to transfer and update OE data from
    one computer to another WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS.
