Transfer Wanadoo email files to Outlook 2003

  Xavier 14:00 06 Jan 2007

I am trying to help a friend transfer his email files from his old XP PC to a new XP (pro) PC.
He used to use Wanadoo/Orange webmail to receive his emails, and has them saved, but I don't know where - on his PC or the Orange Webmail server. Is there any way I can locate them and move them into Outlook, which will become his email prog from now on.
Many thanks for any help.

Many thanks for your reply.
I really need to back-up the Wanadoo/Orange webmail, which I can not find cached/filed/stored.
My only method would seem to be to forward all the stored Wanadoo mail to the new PC, and then to open it in Outlook. This just looks a long way round!
Never mind - have a nice day.

What program is he using to view e-mails on his old PC? Outlook Express, Outlook or just webmail?

Wanadoo/Orange Webmail.
I think the emails must be stored on their server, because I can not find a trace of them on his old PC, also they are still available on the new PC via webmail. I would like to find a nice way to 'move' them to the new PC, so that I can save them in Outlook 2003, which will then become his email program of choice.

If he is using webmail ie accessing his e-mail through IE6/7 or Firefox and from the Orange webmail page then the e-mails stay on the server until they are deleted.
If he is using Outlook or Outlook Express then they are downloaded to the PC unless "remain on server" box is ticked.
You should be able to set up an e-mail account on Outlook and they will then be downloaded unless it is a fsnet address which is really webmail only.

Settings for Outlook are available on the Orange website. click here
