    Hello,

    I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn't work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up... I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help o_O?

    Try this one : "Acubix PicoBackup" (freeware) for all Windows.

    Frankly I don't know, because I never used it, not even Outlook Express.
    I use the much safer Thunderbird for email and moved my emails + address-book to another partition (data partition).
    I backup my data partition, including emails, with Acronis True Image Home.

    There are users at Wilders who use PicoBackup and were satisfied.
    I guess the word filters are also included in the settings.
    What's the point of a backup, if it doesn't restore everything ?
    To be very sure, you have to try PicoBackup.
    There are many Outlook backup softwares, but most of them are paywares.

    Hi,

    After many searches I found several good tutorials on how to manually
    backup
    up the email folders and address book, but nothing on how to save
    settings
    and signatures; and then I've found some nice software tools that
    backup
    everything including settings, rules and signatures, such as :
    http://www.amicutilities.com/outlook-express-backup/

    So my problem is solved.
