Portable Windows Mail


New Member

I would like to use Windows Mail (which I think is an EXCELLENT piece of software) on both my desktop and Laptop computers.

I have tried copying all the files to the alternate machine, which works.

BUT - and this is the BIG BUT, each time I move the files to the other machine, I have to re-input passwords for all the e-mail accounts I have set up. As I have several, this is a real pain.

Does anyone know where these e-mail passwords are held?

Also, IDEALLY, I would like to specify that the mailstore was on a flash drive or external disk, but Windows Mail (like Outlook Express before it, does not allow this). Does anyone know a workaround (eg: registry edit) to fix this?
