Thanks for input. i had a quick look and at the risk of being picky/ungrateful etc. I noticed these comments:
Although Outlook Express Backup's purpose is fairly narrow, it does what it does very well, with a full complement of features we expect to see in a good backup utility. Its name defines its limits; this program will back up your Outlook Express e-mail and configuration files. However, it does go a bit beyond that by also backing up Internet Explorer bookmarks and any files that you manually select. The interface is nice and clean, highlighting its three main functions: backing up, restoring, and scheduling. A wizard walks you through the creation of a backup, which is useful for novice users. The program includes essential features for a backup utility, such as the ability to schedule jobs, compression of backup files, and encryption of your archive. You also can choose the level of compression and encryption. One unfortunate drawback is that you can't include folders among the manually selected files, making it inappropriate for more general backups. This program is extremely useful for those who use Outlook Express and don't know where its files are hidden. If you can figure that out, however, a more general backup utility is a better option.
"easy to use, but not really free"
at least it works, there's not much out there
not really free, trial version.
it's either this or doing it the hard way.
Any one know how much it is ? why do they always try the con freee/trial/etc etc..why not just the Price to start with ? That tatic always puts me right off.
Just found this:
