Need to Copy Emails in Outlook Express on to CD ASAP

By murray1987 ·
I have to format my hard drive tonight. I'm copying important info onto CD's. I can't figure out how to copy the emails. I save them for business purposes and need them. Can anyone tell me how? I have to stay up all night until I figure it out, a satellite internet service is being hooked up tomorrow and I've got to get my computer up to par.

creat a .pst file (as suggested) and move the emails to it. Copy the .pst file(s) to cd
create a folder on your desktop (or elsewhere) and drag and drop the emails into the folder (or copy/paste). It will give it a file type of .msg which should be able to be read by any email program
