    OutLook Express Questions (OE 5.x with Win98SE)

    Hello All,

    4 Questions about Outlook Express and how to use it:

    1) Is it possible to have 3 Hotmail accounts downloaded into one or more Outlook Express folders? How about Yahoo accounts? OK so I am greedy and I have a lot of e-mail accounts and I need to manage them all from the same place.

    2) How do I consolidate the messages on my laptop, I use when I am travelling, and my desktop main message storage?

    3) Could I change the location of the file that contains my messages so that it gets backed up with the rest of the stuff that I backup?

    4) What file contains all my messages?

    Thanks for your help.

    1) yes. with yahoo you need ot use their pop option. each hotmail address get's it's own folder tree.
    2) leave mail on server is the easiest and check with each computer. works good for hotmail, http is similar to imap where all messages are on the server.
    3) they are dbx files. see tools > options > maintainance to move the folder store for pop mail. hotmail is stored on the hotmail server.
    4) see #3 <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Wow MaryJ

    4 for Four... Thanks a million. I will try it when I get home, but I would like to empty my server mailbox, so I guess I will do it when I get home after travel, and not from my laptop. This way I can re-download all my messages into a single folder.

    One clarification though, I will set up the 3 Hotmail accounts the same way and it will make the separate folder tree for each automatically, Yes?

    Now will I be able to download all the message from all the account in one operation?

    Thanks again

    each hotmail account will have it's own set of folders.

    done correctly, a send/receive will check all accounts, one after the other. set all to use the same connection or "any connection"

    BTW - for al lthings OE, see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.tomsterdam.com>http://www.tomsterdam.com</A>
