Hello there,


I am looking for a Backup program were you can make only backups from Outlook Express and documents.
I saw a Backup program were you can make only backups of e-mails from Microsoft Outlook Express.
My question in this is: What are the differences between those e-mail programs.?

Outlook is more robust than Outlook Express, hence the use of 'express' in the name. There are differences. See: Differences between Outlook and Outlook Express

Thanks for the information Animal.
I have read the info between Outlook and Outlook Express and what I saw, there is no much differences between Outlook and Outlook Express.
The functionality what Outlook has is something bigger than that from Outlook Express.
But the differences between that is nearly nill.

One big difference is in how the two program store their data.
Outlook stores everything in one file called outlook.pst making backup easy.

Outlook Express stores data in multiple files all having *.dbx extensions.
In the beginning there was the command line.
