Help needed with backing up Outlook email folders and settings



I want to reinstall Windows Xp soon, as I got a virus and after cleaning the computer doesn’t work as smooth as before. I gives some strange erros and sometimes it justs hangs up… I want to backup Outlook Express emails and settings before reinstall, and restore afterwards. Any help?
