    transfer windows mail folder to a usb drive

    how can i transfer a windows mail folder ( and about 30 sub folders) to a usb
    drive.

    ultimatley, from there i'd like to import them into MS outlook on another
    computer. if that can't be done, i can use windows mail on the other one.

    In order to transfer mail to OL both apps have to be set up on the same PC,
    and Mail or OE has to have the msg store configured/connected

    Re: transfer windows mail folder to a usb drive

    unfortunately, i can't have both programs on the same computer. i am taking
    over accounts that were the responsbility of another former employee. as
    part of the transistion process, the former employee has agreed to allow me
    to export the files related to his work with the company (i don't want his
    entire email account - he has many personal files that aren't my business.).

    I have figured out how to export certain folders to the usb drive.

    my remaining question is how can i import these folders into MS outlook 2003
    that i am using on my computer?

    Thanks.

    Also, Windows Mail often has problems accessing external drives, so you
    may have to transfer them first to an empty directory you create on your
    hard drive, then copy that directory and all of its contents to the USB
    drive.

    You'll probably have to ask in a newsgroup meant for questions about
    Outlook, such as:

    microsoft.public.outlook.general
    microsoft.public.outlook.installation
