Hello gang,

I want to back up all the e-mail in my inbox/sent/deleted...items and contacts etc... to CD. How does
one do this? I'd like to be able to pop in that CD in the future to just look around for an old e-mail if need be.

Cheers,
Arf.

PS--I'm using Outlook 2003.

in outlook, you can do file > inport/export, export to a file, then choose outlook pst as the file type....then choose all the sections you want exported (i usually just go with the main inbox which will export all the stuff for that account) then save that file as whatever.pst....this will create a file of all of that info...you can then burn that to a cd....now...you wont be able to just browse t he cd as if it were your email account....you would have to import that file every time you want to look at the mails...which will effectively put them back into your mailbox...
