How can I copy entire emails from Outlook Express to a text editor?

How do I copy a range of e-mails from MS Outlook Express 6 (‘From’, ‘Date’, ‘To’ & ‘Subject’ and any attachements), to a text editor or MS Word?

    did Outlook Extract work for you or did you find another solution in the meantime? Please let us know. Thank you!

    Hello, if a remember correctly, outlook express lets you do this, but I am not sure if you can do more than one email at the time. Anyways, you can try the following:

    -- open Outlook Express
    -- select and email you want to send to text
    -- on menu, click on File
    -- select the save as option
    -- on box that pops up, select where you want to save text
    -- under file name, type a name
    -- under save as type, select text files (*.txt)
    -- click on save

      Thx Fidelis - Not really the solution I am looking for - Graphics are not saved in .txt & I'd also like to select a range of e-mails per save 'transaction' ...
