exporting messages...getting a MAPI error

I'm reformating this machine and I need to back up the messages. When I try to export the messages the window pops up saying "The export could not be preformed. An error occurred while initializing MAPI." I am using Outlook Express 6 on a WinME platform.

Thanks

There is a message that pops up when select File > Export > mail

Note what it says

"This will export messages from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange"
