    I find that placing the exports into folders with dates as names on a separate HDD works best for me.

    I do not use Office Outlook, so you might post a new thread on that instead to hopefully get a answer for it.

    Hello prukeyhi,

    Winmail.FOL contains saved user settings of the folder itself, it does not contain any email messages. The actual messages are stored as .EML files which can be imported or dragged and dropped into Windows Mail folders.

    It's not required to import them back.
