I need help in transfering saved email in outlook (archives) to my hard drive
or to copy onto a DVD or CD. I understand that I must get this mail out to
save space but I don't know how to move several hundred files at once. I also
have a setup from a company called Zango that interferes with my mail,
especially in opening links.
I'm sure this is spyware from a dirty video my son downloaded. That part I
have taken care of. Please help.

If you're actually using Outlook and not Outlook Epxress, and actually have
the archive folder, simply copy or move the archive file, archive.pst, to
the DVD. Unless you saved the emails separately, you are dealing with one
file only.

To locate this file, right click on the "Archive Folders" name in the folder
tree, and choose "Properties for Archive Folders". Click on the Advanced
button. The second field down is the complete filename.

Please note that the default location for this file (and also the Outlook
Express mail files, and the Windows Address book, which are in separate
locations) is a hidden folder. To browse to it, you will need to open
Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and select "show hidden files
and folders".

Outlook will need to be closed when you copy the file.

One problem you might run into later, when you need to read the contents of
the archive, is that files copied to CD and DVD get their 'read only'
attribute set. Outlook requires read/write access to open a PST file, so
when you need to use these files, you must copy them back to the hard disk.
This normally resets them as read/write.

I don't see what this has to do with Outlook. If the MP3s are attachments
on messages, save them to some folder, tell WMP to add them to your library,
and burn them to a CD. I don't see what's so hard.
