outlook express messages

Postby mynazzaraxxsyn » Wed Dec 10, 2003 2:06 am

Long story short i got a f'ing virus on my computer from cyber sex with thanuk's mom. I'm going to format the drive, but before I do would like to save all my mail messages in outlook express. Is this possible? If its not does anyone use a freeware or dirt cheap mail program that it is possible through so I don't have to lose all my messages again.

I like Eudora. No one makes email viruses for it.

Wasn't an email virus I don't think. I think it was one of those pop up "you need a file from this company to view this web page" with the check here to always trust files from thanuk's mom. I hit yes instead of no and downloaded the virus.

You can just back up the files into another drive. In Outlook Express, check for the Store Folder path under Tools->Options->Maintenance, then just copy away. Once you reformat and reinstall Windows, just check for the new Store Folder location and dump those backed up files in there.

actually that doesn't sound like a virus, it sounds like spyware. Unless your AV software picked up a virus. You could just download some anti-spyware software like spyhunter or something. I know there's free ones, just dunno where.
