    There should be a microsoft user items (may not be named exactly that) folder in your user directory. It is usually in your documents folder. All of your emails will be stored there. Make a copy of that somewhere and then do your uninstall then install. Before you open the program simply replace the new folder that the install process creates with the copy you made and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.
