I have been using microsoft outlook for two years and it has all of my contact information as well as many saved emails in different folders. Recently, i sent an email to my office/network and was told that a spam worm was on my email and that it has to be cleaned out.( The email was an ecard and is sendign out spams to multiple computers. )I am going to send my computer off to have it cleaned however, i don't want to lose all my email contacts and saved emails. Is there any way to transfer all the information off of this computer onto another computer without damaging the new computer with the spam worm? Also, I did delete the email that was responsible for the worm and have not used the computer again. (I am on a different computer now) Do I have to wait on someone else to clean the computer before i can do anything with my emails?

Please advise,

Yes, you can backup your emails. Take a look at this website.

If your using Outlook and not Outlook Express you need to find a .pst file. If it's Outlook Express you need to find the .dbx files.
