I downloaded a lot of emails from YahooMail to Outlook without leaving a copy on the Yahoo Server

Is there any way (including 3rd party software - i'll try anything!) to get these downloaded emails back into the Yahoo Inbox while retaining the original From and Sent Date

 ie i'd prefer not to forward them back to myself although i will if that's the only solution.

thanks

I wonder if you connected via IMAP and moved the emails into THAT inbox?

Hello bradcnyc,

Email Redirect is an Outlook addin that will do what you want. It will redirect the email from Outlook to your Yahoo address. Headers will remain as original email.

For a free solution, there is a bit of workaround.  There is no free redirect program for Outlook. Thunderbird has a free redirect addin.  Install Thunderbird. During the installation process, TB will download the emails from Outlook.

Then use MailRedirect Extension to redirect emails from TB to Yahoo address.

Hope this helps!

I used the thunderbird workaround - figured it was worth trying the free solution first and it worked perfectly!  

thanks again :-)
