Vista - Windows Mail. copy and save messages

I'm looking for backup my windows mail emails. I look in the C:\users\(user-name limes) \AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local files etc. but do not see the directories where the actual messages are stored only the Inbox, box send, sent, Deleted, drafts, and junk. Where are the directories for the actual messages. * E-mail address is removed from the privacy *

Needless to say that the export and import functions do not work. They do not export on a disk or zip drive (who wants to export to the same drive that may crash!), but even when I do this last import cannot find the exported files.

Since this is about the most important function in modern business that is emailing why there not a simple way to backup emails.

Excerpt:

NOTE: Your messages were exported to the location selected in step 1 and 6 above. You can save this file exported in something such as an DVD or USB key for save or use to transfer to another computer. If you cannot copy the file exported for any reason, then place the folder exported in a ZIP file first and try again.

  • Since download IE9 has changed the font on my message preview, on Windows Mail panel, and the symbol of the attachment is not there. How can I change this back?

    Since download IE9 has changed the font on my message preview, on Windows Mail panel, and the symbol of the attachment is not there.  How can I change this back?

    Just go in the Panel. Programs and features and then click on the left of "view installed updates" and find Windows Internet Explorer 9, and then you can uninstall it.  You should know that it is installed automatically via Windows Update, so you'll need to keep it to be reinstalled.  I think you can go Windows Update manually, and then it will ask you, then you can't deny it there and it should stick.

  • How can I get Vista "Windows Mail" to check mail using my connection local (LAN) internet?

    How can I get Vista "Windows Mail" to check mail using my connection local (LAN) internet?

    It allows only wants to "connect" using dial-up, wireless or wired ISP (type PPP) requiring a UID and password, of which none seem to allow me to select a LAN (ISP) simple (without a password).

    I know that the Ethernet connection works Ok, because I can use it with a standard Web browser; only the mail tool can't seem to see or use.

    Whenever I tell the Windows Mail email 'Send and receive', he wants to 'connect' for remote access or one of his three choices (listed above and direct exclusion of any connection to the local network).  It works with remote access, so once I have spend that I should be Ok. but I can't make it work directly.

    Help.

    In Windows Mail, go to select Tools, accounts, your account email, properties, connection.  It shows for the connection?  You
    should leave this setting not selected, in which case Windows Mail will use the IE connection uses.
     
    In addition, under Tools, Options, connection, the first checkbox must be checked, and the second box unchecked.
     
    If everything which withdraws, but you still have the problem, the account may be damaged.  Remove account, restart Windows Mail,.
    then recreate the account.

  • Windows mail message, Windows mail can compact your messages database.

    I use windows mail and when I close windows mail, I me meassage windows mail can compact your message store, what is it?

    should I go for it, what it means?

    I use windows mail and when I close windows mail, I me meassage windows mail can compact your message store, what is it?

    should I go for it, what it means?

    This means that there are more than a certain level of white space in your message store (usually this means that you have removed a number of items).

    Yes go ahead.

    Compacted mail databases are generally safer and more resistant to corruption than the non-compacted.

  • All of my Windows Mail subfolders and the emails contained in disappeared mysteriously.

    original title: Windows Mail lost all subfolders

    All of my Windows Mail subfolders and the emails contained in disappeared mysteriously.  I closed Windows Mail with all folders and opening Windows Mail again the next day, only the default folders (Inbox, sent, etc.) were present.

    I created a new folder named "Test" that I can see has been saved in "C:\Users\San\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders" as well as other folders by default, but I can find no trace of my 20 folders + that I had previously.

    Help!

    Nobody knows what could have happened and if they might be elsewhere on the HARD drive?  I have run several searches looking for folder names, but so far have developed in white.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    Open your Windows Mail, under local folders, Inbox. Yes?
    Is there a pointer to this Inbox?
    If so, click it.
