Back Up and Restore Your Data
Heinz Tschabitscher
From Heinz Tschabitscher, your Guide to Email
I was a member of the "sure, backups are nice, but..." camp, too -- not a proud member, but a lazy one.
Then I had to transfer my emails, my address book, filters and what not from one computer to another and found out how relatively simple that was.
Now I'm still lazy, but my Outlook Express data is backed regularly with a batch file that automates the process. Find out how you can secure your important messages, too.
Next week: more cool Outlook Express tricks.
