Thanks for the information Trikein (and buddy 215).
Yes, as to the year of the not-too-good-email experiences and as i pledge to do myself away from Outlook if they indeed wiped clean my saved emails, i'm looking at the available selection of other emailers and it's pretty slim pickins' to say the least, the Outlooks not very "looky" good. You know.
I read that article that you link to about the AC or BC (no, just a joke) but yes, about the Outlook.com Outlook.mail and I still don't (kind of) get it. I mean, my login from Windows Live prompt i saved as a Favorite is with the Hotmail.com and Outlook pours right on and has for quite awhile and does say Outlook.mail. So as far as that goes and from something i read and i can't be exact or where from last night, when i first discovered this, i was a little keyed up in scouting about for answers and something read to the effect that the new outstanding Outlook would or could not support past Hotmail and therefore, only calendar contacts and (one other item) would be accommodated to the new Outlook.
I'm thinking that's weird then if the features of the new Outlook that can't-what, carry over or migrate onward past Hotmail email accounts' saved sent emails, (wo that's a long sentence, sorry) then its bigger better-ness really appears to be limited lesser-ness.
Other research has led that there is another way one can obtain his emails by mapping or by creating a workaround that has to do with Pop... and again, I'm not sure since this is new stuff to read up on, but by changing the port on computer to enable the synch-method that when i looked at the site where i found this, it was 2013, and so, i had to think that this may not be present procedure to work (now).
Thanks again for your input. Back to the salt mines.
