Your outlook express stores everything under your profile, just grab that folder :wink:

 %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{Identity-GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\

When you right click on a folder you should have a copy option. Sometimes if you move the mouse while holding down the left mouse button will pop up the move option :wink:
