Is there a way to forward all at once saved emails in outlook express? I am going to reinstall xp and want to save some important emails. If anyone knows if this is possible or not? Or I guess I could forward all 200+ one at a time.......

In Outlook Express go to Tools >> Options >> Maintenance then you should see "store folder" button ... all outlook express emails have a .dbx extension

Save the folder where the directory points to ... then to restore them... just replace that directory in the new install.

Better yet .... you should do a Files and System Transfer Wizard session. If you need help with that let us know!
