I've been having problems with Outlook.com (old Hotmail) for months and am giving up. Emails don't come through for up to 2 days sometimes, which is not good since I use it for my freelance business. So back to Gmail I go...
But I've been advised to download all emails received and sent to my hard drive before closing down the Outlook account. But having scoured the internet I can't find out how it's done.
Some guidance would be great.
Thanks very much
"If you want to use that feature to import folders and emails from web to your harddrive it is called IMAP email (as opposed to POP3)"
Ah I see. Thanks for explaining.
Thanks also for the link to MailStoreHome. I didn't explain that emails are now coming in straight from my server host (not via Outlook.com) but there are lots of sent emails and emails in folders on Outlook.com account that I need to import.
Re the folders in Outlook.com - As it is too involved for me to start trying to explain and there is a forum for em client that seems to cover what you want to do, to find the relevant threads I suggest you google with the search term: em client imap folders
