Default Outlook express: saving emails

Is their Any way to save the inbox of Outlook Express? Like 300 emails? I put all the ones that I want to save in a "Save" folder in Outlook but I Don't know how to save the folder to a disk or anything. I know you can export your save folder as a .dxt (or something like that) , but I don't know for sure If I can get it to work with anything other than Outlook Express. Is their any way to like make them all a text format without going in and copying every single one?

Your messages in your inbox are stored on you hard drive in the following location:
(Below refers to my main drive as E: and my username James Venning)

E:\Documents and Settings\James Venning\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\

there should be a folder in "Identities" that has a string of characters, mine is:

"{51D08EA4-7628-4B15-AA92-2B324964DD15}"

click on it, then click on "Microsoft" and finally "Outlook Express". Your messages are archived into .dbx format.

A quick search in Google gave me "DBX Exract Tool" which will extract the messages from the .dbx files. The program is located here

Hope the above helped!
