You can use outlook to download the emails and folders and then export as a Personal Folder (pst), and then sent it as an attachment.

no lol if you do this in zip form or any form the receiver will end up with an empty zipped folder.
The best way is to burn it onto a cd all contents in tact then mail it to them snails mail.
other wise the contents of folder>> it would have to be individually sent.
Also depending on the size! hotmail does not allow more than 2 megs in emails unless you have purchased the account.
Outlook express however is better.
Other best option is to use msn messenger here you can drag and drop away to your hearts content whatever you want to send to your friend , but do be careful and have your anti virus enablled to scan any incoming shared files..  .

THat's been changed to 10 mb (max size for attachment)

You can just use the evaluation version.  Even after 30 days, you can still use it.

However, this other one is freeware:

"I just Zipped many files in a zip and sent it via Hotmail to another hotmail acct "

Does that mean that we answered your question?  or do you have another one?
