  • You're off topic for this forum, which is dedicated to Windows Live OneCare, which does backup OE files, by the way.

    You can get help with OE in the OE newsgroups located here: 



    A simple way to do what you want, though, is to use the Import/Export functions of OE and export the messages, contacts and email settings. Then import them back after you've reinstalling.
