  • back up automatically

    This is a good tool to backup outlook express automatically
    cilck here to download
    And this is the instruction.
    To back up your Outlook Express mail files automatically:
    Open the downloaded file in Notepad.
    Customize it for your needs.
    You need to enter your Outlook Express store folder as source and
    the folder where you want to keep your backup copies as destination.
    You can move oebackup.bat to any folder, but I recommend either your My Documents folder or a subfolder.
    Open Scheduled Tasks in your Windows Settings.
    Double-click Add Scheduled Task.
    Click Next.
    Click Browse....
    Find and select oebackup.bat.
    Click Open.
    Select a scheduling option under Perform This Task.
    Click Next.
    Click Finish.
    Note-: this article from other web site but I posted here because it's a good tool.

    Members be advised that the download is a batch file (.bat) and caution should be exercised until it is known that the file IS safe and doesn't contain any nasty surprises.

        It it's a batch file you can post it's TEXT contents here, and we can all copy and paste it into a new BAT file.

        Furthermore, that file is NOT yor own creation, therefore I'd expect you to at least give credit to who created it.

        Please correct your message.
