Hi. I'm new to this and would really appreciate some advice!. I am trying to get rid of stuff on my old computer and I would like to know if it's possible to remove selected emails from my computer and store them on my external hard drive? I am using Outlook 2003.
Are you trying to "archive" the messages (i.e. not actively use the messages)? Or do you want to store them on the external drive but still be able to regularly access them?
In reality, the process will be the same for either case...i.e. create a new PST file on the external drive, "attach" or "mount" that PST, and then move those messages/folders to the new PST file, which should show up as a separate item that can "expand" to show folders, etc). One of the links from the Google search that hamluis
linked to will likely provide specific instructions if you need them.
The main difference is that if you want/need to regularly access them, then that external drive will need to be turned on when the computer is on. That is not really a big deal, but if the reason you want to do it is that you are running out of drive space on the computer, you might be better served by upgrading the internal drive.
