In Windows Mail if I drag and drop an email into a folder the contents of the email changes to the original email in the folder but the date and time of the dropped email remains the same. For example in one folder I have seven emails with all the contents the same as the original but with the correct days and times when I received them. I had a look on the internet and I could not find anyone who had the same problem.
Lotvic. If the original email in the folder just said 'Hello Royal' and I dropped another email into the folder with the entire works of shakespear on it. When I come to open up the email with the entire works of shakespear on it it will say 'Hello Royal' therefore I have two emails which will say 'Hello Royal' and any subsequent emails dropped into the folder will display 'Hello Royal'. Some of emails had important contact details which I don't think I can retrieve.
Thanks for all the advice guys. It has taken me two to three hours to go through all of the suggestions but unfortunately I am still having the same problem. I would prefer not to do any drastic actions such as uninstall Windows Mail and re install it because I am not that competent to do it.
Any other suggestions or do I try the uninstall route?
Did you do this bit that was in my link? <<"What you can do is create a new folder in WinMail. Then open it so you see an empty message list. Then go to the directory of eml files in Explorer and select the eml files (only eml files or it won't work) and drag the selection overtop the WinMail folder message list and drop it and those eml files will then be incorporated into the folder.">>
Hi Lotvic. The problem is now solved. I downloaded Windows Live Mail, setup new folders,created dummy emails to drop in the same folder and the contents on each email has not changed. Thank god for that.
Again thanks for your help
