On Win2K,

when I try to export my messages, I get the message:
"The export could not be performed. An error occured while initializing MAPI"

This is a fresh Windows installation.
Can anyone help?

You have to have MS Outlook or Exchange Server installed to do an export. In fact a message comes up that indicatest this just before the error message.

If your intrest is to backup you emails then shutdown Outlook Express and then copy the dbx files in your email folder.

You can export individual mail messages by selecting them in the header display list and dragging them to a folder.  These files are now readable in other programs.  Is this what you intended?
