I like to just find my ?.pst file and copy it to a usb drive. It's name and location depends on the OS your running and login name your using. Do a search for *.pst and look for a very large file with the current date and time (if you just read your emails).

How do I easily backup email files in Outlook 2010 to an external hard drive?


Hi,

Open Outlook, click on file in the top left hand side. Select Import and export. Now select export to a file and click next. Now select the file type you want save as (I mainly use a pst file and its the most common) and click next.
Now select which files you want to back up, for example Inbox, send items, contacts etc and click next. Now Click on browse and navigate to the external drive or save it to your desktop and copy the files to the external later on.

You can back up all of your emails this way just change the name of the file from backup to Inbox etc.


Regards.

Not able to sent email from outlook 2007


Do you have Outlook set up to work with a specific email account? The details of how to make Outlook send mail vary depending on which kind of email you are using (Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, etc.). You can find instructions for making Outlook 2007 work with many of the common types of email at:

http://www.living-with-outlook.com/outlook-web-mail.html

If this doesn't help, you should post information on the kind of email service you are using. Specifically, who is the email provider (Comcast, Verizon, etc.)

Yahoo accepted my user name and password but mail sent to my yahoo address goes to my outlook inbox which is still active and I wish to keep that account but would also like my new yahoo account. I would...


Could you please explain this more clearly? If I am not wrong you just open new yahoo account and set your outlook client to receive messages from Yahoo Mail service (as far as I know this is available in Pro option only).

I couldn't understand what do you mean: 
"mail sent to my yahoo address goes to my outlook inbox which is still active and I wish to keep that account"


Outlook is a email software and you can add there as many accounts as you wish without losing any of them. Your question isn't clear for me but you do not need to be worried in any way of losing any of your accounts at all.

Outlook express - inbox mail from the last 6 months disappeared



Do you mean that your inbox has many years of mails and only the 6 months mails went away somehow?

Start OE, click on Tools -> Options -> Maintenence. Then double click the Store Folder path and press Ctrl-C to copy it to clipboard.

Start -> Run then press Ctrl-V and press enter

Check there in case your mails were in different folders. In case there are any numbered files in this folder like inbox[1].dbx .... then we know that is the problem.

There are ways to get the data but first you need to identify.

Inbox messages syncing mysteriously


Turn off the conduit. It sounds like you dont want the Mail to synchronize at all. You can set the Mail or VersaMail conduit to Do Nothing permanently if you would rather not have mail synchronizing. Go to HotSync icon in your system tray and click on it. Select Custom... Make sure your username is selected and then choose the mail conduit. Set it to Do Nothing and ensure you check the box 'Set as Default'
