    Hello,

    Is there a "good" way to save/backup (to a CD, e.g.) your Sent Folder and
    some other Folders in OE ?

    Any good free (or inexpensive) utility or program that helps you do this ?

    Not too sharp with this stuff, so would have to be relatively
    straightforward and simple.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Tom Koch calls that a 'partial' backup at his site^1.

    He also provides a link to OE Quick Backup^2 which can do that type of
    backup or a complete or clone backup

    ^1 Tom Koch's site's backup section, which you should read and
    understand http://www.insideoe.com/backup/ Backup and Restore --
    Do-It-Yourself Backups -- OE Backup, free backup utility

    ^2 http://www.oehelp.com/oebackup/default.aspx Outlook Express Quick

    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application

    Copy the entire Outlook Express folder to a CD/DVD/another partition, etc.

    Using this method, the older .dbx files can be imported by a simple copy &
    paste, as required.

    This is simple...

    1. Make a new folder on your desktop, name it as you wish

    2. Highlight all files within an OE "folder" that you want to keep.

    3. Drag the selected files to the new desktop folder.

    4. Burn the folder (or just the contents thereof)

    5. Delete the desktop folder.

    If you ever want to restore (import) files from CD-R/DVD±R, copy them
    to a HD temp folder first and make sure they are not readonly, or they
    will not import.
