How to back up inbox of Window Mail program

I am getting ready to do a system recovery on a window vista home edition computer and would like to be able to save the emails that are in the inbox of Window Mail program if possible. Is there a way to save them to a disk or quickdrive?? thanks for the help.

Go to File-->Export-->Messages, select Microsoft Windows Mail, and follow the prompts to export your email.

To save your account information, go to Tools-->Accounts, click on the account name, and Export (do it for all of them if you have more than one account setup). Once your system is restored, you can put the account info back with an Import at this same spot.

File-->Export-->Windows Contacts will take care of your address book.

Once you restore your system, you can launch Windows Mail, go to File-->Import, and browse to the files you previously backed up.
