copying email messages

S

using windows live mail 2009 and windows 7
here's the problem, i have 2 pc's, one in usa, one in uk, i use windows live
mail to get my msn emails and also to get my btinternet emails (using POP3),
i 'leave message on server' re BT so when i come back to london, live mail
collects all email in the 'in box' for both msn and BT, in the USA i
physically copied 'sent messages' (that i sent from BT thru live mail) from
the relevant folder onto memory stick and then pasted them here in london in
the equivalent folder, unfortunately when i go into live mail the BT sent
message is there but rather than showing who the email was sent to, it shows
who it was from (obviously they were all from me), is there a way to show who
they were sent to?
would appreciate any help

tks and rgds

As long as you understand that when using Pop3 to retrieve mail the 'sent' messages are only present on the machine from which the
message was originally sent.

Try
a. draggingone of those messages copied to the WLM sent folder to your desktop then back into WLM
or
b. instead of copying(pasting) the messages to an 'equivalent folder', import them to user created folder in WLM's Storage folders,
then drag to the Sent Items folder.

thank you, your suggestion of dragging onto desktop and then into 'sent'
folder worked, much appreciated.
