Free Outlook Express Extractor is a small utility that can extract your emails from Outlook Express in batch mode, as the name implies, so you can easily read them on the offline platform. It can be effortlessly handled, regardless of the user's level of experience.
After a brief installation procedure, you are greeted by a standard window with an uncomplicated layout.
Once you are connected to your email account on Outlook Express, you can select the folder containing the data you want to save - Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Drafts or Junk E-mail.
It is possible to save all messages, the first 500 or first 1000 of them, as well as to export the emails to plain text documents (TXT) or the EML format.
In addition, you may export the attachments as well, together with the address book to plain text documents. Unfortunately, there are no other options available in this program. For instance, you cannot make Free Outlook Express Extractor open the output directory once the email files are converted, or preview data in the main frame.
The simple-to-use application is low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory consumption, so it does not interfere with the runtime of other active processes. It has a good response time and extracts emails rapidly. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the program did not hang or crash.
Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, Free Outlook Express Extractor's features can be seamlessly figured out, even by users with less or no experience in such programs.
