Windows 7: Backup outlook express emails

Backup outlook express emails

Hi Friends,

A friend of mine is using Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit on his laptop with Outlook Express 2007 as his e-mail client. He wants to back up all his e-mail in Outlook Express 2007 and transfer them to a totally new PC with Outlook Express 2007 or later. What is the best way to do so? I remember taking a backup of e-mails in Outlook Express 2007 which involved exporting all e-mails to a .pst file successfully, but that was many years ago. Can you please guide me? Thanks.

I lost all emails in the Outlook Express. Everything happened very suddenly. Simply turn on the PC. opened an Outlook Express and saw that there were no letters. Thought it was a glitch. But did not find them in the recycle bin even. Hoping that it's because of the compression, but the recycle bin...
