"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe this is not natively possible within Outlook Express.  There are third-party tools available for the mass-export of such e-mails, but these are all commercial, last I looked.  Additionally, they all use the MAPI protocol to gain access to the e-mails, so if there's another e-mail client which has the functionality you seek & can import e-mails through MAPI, then that is an optional way to go.
