I have Outlook Express on Windows XP on the home computer. One folder contains about 80 received newsletterswhich I have not had time to read. Now departingt on our 3 month winter escape down the west coast highway fgrom Portland to Morro Bay, I wanted to transfer that outlook express folder or contents to an outlook express folder on my notebook computer, so I can read them in all my new leisure time. Like if it rains for days.
In the past I was able to do this, locating the folder by its name and moving it to the new computer in comparable position. But now i can no longer find Outlook Express folders at all, even searching for file name and including hidden files. One work-around was to forward each of the emails, or even groups of them, by email, and receive them on the notebook. But that takes a long time and produced very long combined files if I did them in groups. Is there an easy way to transfer by memory stick?
Alternatively, can email files be converted or saved in a way I can read them with a word processor?
There is always more than one way to do what you want. The trick is to find a way that works best for you.
You should be able to use the export/import function in Outlook Express to do what you want.
Here is a link that explains the process:
That is how I would probably do it.
Here is a link to a site that explains how to get your messages out of the OE format:
This one sounds like what you were doing by forwarding groups of emails.
