I have so many e-mails I need to save but I don't know how to copy them or move them from Windows Live Mail to either a flashdrive and/or a disc.   Can anyone give me instructions on how to accomplish this....

Thank you...Selahlee

Hi selahlee :)

Microsoft have a whole tutorial showing you how to import and export various items from Windows Live Mail, right here:


What you're looking for is under To export email messages from Windows Live Mail. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

Just a note.;.when you export or save emails...unless they are somehow converted to another file format, you will still need the email client to open/read said emails.


This may be useful.
