    I wish to make safety backups of all my Outlook Express 6 emails .. Inbox, Sent, Archive, and the contents of other saved email Folders within Outlook. However I cannot trace the default address(es) to locate where all the email datafiles are stored on my PC using XP Professional, so I cannot yet copy them. Hopefully there is a simple answer? Thanks.

    err .. Thanks but there are maybe 1500 emails, or even more.

    That's a lot of trees and unnecessary printing. Not quite what I had in mind. I simply want to copy them to an external hard drive for backup.

    Can someone please tell me the default address for Outlook Express data files.
