How to backup e-mail of outlook express

By Hunterzh ·
In our company, colleagues like using Outlook Express for sending and receiving mails. We use IMail Server 8.0 as mail server program.

For safety, colleagues need to backup their mails periodically. Normally they just upload the Outlook Express folder (for example C:\Documents and Settings\hunterzh\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{94AE18B9-D135-480C-8957-CB85**26F3D7}\Microsoft\Outlook Express) into our internal ftp server.

But how can, let?s say, they store their previous mails (before this January) in a folder, and continue to use other features like account, address book to send and receive new mails?

If just copy the Outlook Express entire folder, it?s hard to look back an old mail or divide them by time sections.

How can we satisfy the above requirements?

Why not open ouitlook express and simply export the .pst file.
This would allow you to save the .PST file at periodic intervals say on a monthly basis. Then they caqn import the entire .pst file as and when required.

You need a 3rd party utility such as OE Backup.

I'm sure that there are others out there.

This should allow you to perform incremental backups.

The same web site offers a program to extract individual e-mails from an OE DBX file.
