Can do it one of 3 ways. You can look for the outlook express folder and copy that folder to a cd. Then when you set up your new oe after the reinstall, you can just dump this folder in. (of course this begs the question, where did you get the virus? If in an email, youre taking a chance).

2nd thing you can do is just drag the emails to a folder on your desktop (just like any file. you can seperate your emails into sub folders) then burn to a cd. Then once windows is reinstalled, just drag the emails back into OE after you recreated your folders. The date received will be messed up (date you drag them back in) but you will still have them.

3rd option is to forward all your emails to yourself and then dont download them from the server. Then once OE is back up and you retrieve your mail, they will all be there.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I also found Outlook Express Backup Genie which does the job right and fast. I will try them out more and then buy one!
