    Would like to know if anyone can tell me how backup the "Inbox" folder in Outlook Express/WinXP-HE? Tried everything, and obviously haven't tried something.

    Thanks for your reply(ies)

    In XP, all the OE mail foldders are stored as .dbx files. Do a file search for inbox.dbx. Mine is in
    C:\Documents and Settings\[my name]\Application Data\Identities\{742DC712-BE9D-4EF7-BA65-C0041FC3121A}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Inbox.dbx
    Copy it somewhere - click on the copy to make sure it works.
