    I'm going to restore my laptop back to the way it was out of the box so I
    need to backup my contacts and mail in Windows Mail before I do this, so that
    I can restore them when the laptop resinstallation is complete. How do I do
    this?

  2. First of all you need to goto Organize/Folder and Search Options then click
    on
    View and uncheck the box
    Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
    This allows you to see the AppData Folder

    Go to
    C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
    UserName is you as a user

    and backup the Windows Mail Folder

    After installing Vista again just copy the Windows Mail folder folder to the
    above location.

    If you are using the backup that comes with Vista all this will be taken
    care of.
