    Copy/move email from one identity to another

    Occasionally, I have the need to share an email between two or more identities. Rather than forward the email, is there a way to copy or move it from one indentity to another?

    I am using OE 5.5

    Thanks

    Re: Copy/move email from one identity to another

    You can import from one identity to another (you may need the other identity password, not sure). What you can do is create a folder called Transfer, in each identity, then move any message you wish to transfer to that folder, then, from the New Identity, select Import - Messages, then select the other identity, and import from the transfer folder. Kind of a lot of steps, but it does work.

    drag and drop on the desktop then drag and drop into the mail folders of the other identities.

    once on the desktop you can open them with notepad BTW.

    Thanks. Even easier than JamesB's suggestion, or would be if my desktop weren't so cluttered.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks also to JamesB for taking time to help.
