I know you said without the use of a special program, but I have used Express Assist for years, you can try it out for like 30 days free. It will save your E-mail address's, Inbox, Save, Drafts, Outbox, even your Block Senders and Favorites List and restore the whole thing from 3 1/2 floppy disks in minutes. You can find it through the download sites like Tucows, or ZD Net, give it a try, do your reinstall, and take it back off your machine if you don't like it, it'll save you a lot of trouble. Ryan
