    Ok, I have about 400 messages that I deem inportant to me in my outlook express. I would like to save them to a folder on disk and refer to them if need be at a later date. How can I do this? Thanks in advance

    I have a folder created in My Documents entitled, of all things, 'Saved Emails'. I then click on the email I wish to save, click on 'File' and select 'Save As'. Then navigate to the folder in My Documents, open and click on 'Save'. Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to save more than one email at a time.

    Just my 2 cents worth :)

    Second that, just found a way to save more than one email at a time. I opened both my 'Saved Emails' folder and OE simultaneously on the desktop. Adjusted each so they would fit side by side. In OE selected 'Edit' then 'Select All'. Holding the left button down, dragged and dropped the emails from OE to the 'Saved Emails' folders. I then deleted the emails form OE.
