    Hey all. I think I know how to do this, but let me double check before I wipe my laptop's hard drive and reinstall Windows 2000.

    First off, I should tell you that the reason I am wiping is because it has 98 and then 2000 on top of it...and it runs so slow!

    But anyway, I have old email files saved to my AOL Filing cabinet in Windows 98 (AOL 7.0 I believe). I need those emails saved so that I don't loose them. I notice in AOL 8.0 there is a "backup" feature. Does anyone know if this feature is available in 7.0 and if it will restore my whole filing cabinet for that particular screen name.

    Also, I assume that will work with my 8.0 emails in 2000...just send that backup file across the network to one of my other PC's for holding, and then format and "restore" from backup when I am done...I won't loose any emails will I?

    Also, recently a user here has been using Outlook Express for emails, but they dont like it. I suggested Mozilla Mail, but they didn't like that because it didn't have a spell check. So I suggested Netscape which has a spell check, and they said OK.

    Is there a way to export my Outlook messages and import into Netscape? I don't know if they have an address book or not, but is it possible to do that also?

    I know a lot of questions and text.

    Thanks In Advance


    *EDIT* Also, how would I import them into Mozilla mail?
