Thanks for those tips Pikachu! I'll try them later on. This morning I went ahead and saved them all individually! It took awhile, but now it's done and I can backup each day and it won't take so long.
On another note:
Do you know of a better/newer/more efficient email program other than Outlook Express? I have found there is also just Outlook. The computer person I consulted with recently mentioned one, but I forget what he suggested. He wasn't happy with Outlook Express and I've had more than my share of problems with it lately.
