If AOL Software won't open, how do I access the e-mail in it saved to my PC?

Have AOL 9.0 software on my desktop from many years ago. Need to clean out the old jokes and other e-mails I saved to my PC in there over the years. I used to be able to open the program, go the mail saved on my PC and retrieve what I needed. Now the software won't open. How do I access the email saved on my PC?
