how have you back-upped you mails m8..?
read what I've done some time ago, maybe it will be helpful (for next time, heh..)
for backuping Microsoft Outlook Express:
choose 'adress book'
|(for backuping messages, do the same, just choose 'messages')
submit the 1st opition 'Microsoft Exchange Personal Address Book'
| (or 'output')
|(if that option do not work cause some of windows compoments was not installed, do next)
submit the 2nd opition 'Text File'
enter file's saving location and name
enter 'finish' or
backup this file by putting it on a disket or like
heh, cheers (B) m8..
