Exporting from Outlook Express

I changed my email from Eudora to Outlook Express several months ago.  No problem importing mail from Eudora to Outlook at all but what if I want to change to something else again?  The export messages function in Outlook Express only allows me to export to Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook and it gives an error too.  Perhaps I need to re-install.  Does anybody know how you can export to more programs or even just text files?

Nice, that'll do.  I can get them out of Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook and then export them to Access, text file or whatever :)  

Thanx :)
