    Is there a way to transfer email messages in folders to a CD, thus removing them from Windows Mail? (Windows Vista)

    Try looking at C:\Users\"UserName"\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s Live Mail\Live\Inbox

    All you have to do is select the message(s) you want to save, go to file and you will see "save as". click that and it will allow you to save the messages to a file, say in my documents or where ever you want. then its simple to copy them to a CD from there, just as if you would do it for pictures or music etc. All email programs I have ever used have the ability to save emails in a file on your hard drive.

    With Windows live, you must save each one, one at a time. You do not have the options to use Save or Save As when you have more than one email selected, as they (the saving entries) are greyed out.

    ...or you can select all the messages you want to save (just hold down the Ctrl Key) and forward them to yourself in one email and then you have the choice of saving one email with all your messages to a file to copy. This does work, I tried it already with windows live and running Windows 7 64 bit. Of course this may depend on how many emails you want to forward to yourself and the size of them in one email. Anyway,............I say just play around a bit. You can't do too much harm.............unless you press delete ....LOL

    IN LIVE MAIL:
    File->Export->Messages.

    then select an empty folder to export them to.
    You'll have the option to choose exactly what folder you want to export, or you can
    export them all and prune them later.

    You can then clean them up a bit, and then burn them to disc.

    Easy as pie.

    Dave, thanks! Just tried it and it worked perfectly! FYI: The exact path for me was: C:\Users\admin\App/Data\Local\Microsoft|Windows Mail\Local Folders\Email Folder I was looking for!
