If you are talking about Exchange/Outlook system then your best bet is to export the messages/folders to a .pst file and then ssopy the pst file to disk.CD.

That way you retain the folder strusctre.

i agree, if using outlook, under tools, services, bring up the outlook profile and add a new service call Personal Folders. Give it a location to put the xx.pst file in.

Then, copy or move messages from the normal message store you use to the Personal Folder Store you just created. Exit Outlook so the .pst file is not in use. Then, copy that .pst file to some other media.

this is the way i do it so that i can have access to certain emails at home that are from work without having to dial in.

Hi !

The best way is to Move all the message in a personal folder and then copying that folder to CD or Floppy.
So , that you can open all the folders whenever you are again trying to retreive the mails from the CD or Floppy.
This is the best way because in this way it will keep all your folders as you have made and also keep You Contacts(Address Book) in your personal folder(.pst).

If you are interested in only moving the mails to the Floppy or CD then You just select all the mails , you want to move and then Drag & Drop it in the Floppy or CD in the Windows Explorer.
This is how i took my Mail Backup and it worked fine for me.

Best of Luck

Guru
