How to backup Outlook Express email folders and settings

I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn't work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up... I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help?

Restoring or migrating outlook backup files can be tricky...

Particularly if you're using a 2000 Outlook express program. Any backup file over 2 gigs are generally corrupted and I've seen corruption in file sizes smaller than that. 

Look over the link Foambrush gave you and respond on this thread if there are any questions.

I use Outlook Express and back up periodically.  You will want to back up your address book (WAP), your stored emails, email account(s)' settings, and newsgroup account's settings.  I use the procedure here to make a backup folder and to restore from the backup after a reformat.  Works great.

I don't know if you would consider it easy but hit that link in the previous post.  tells how to save messages, your address book and account configurations.
