I'm wanting to copy thousands of email messages (in dozens of folders) from Windows Mail one laptop, to Outlook 2013 on a Windows 8.1 laptop, retaining the folder structure, using these instructions:
At the bottom of this section:
"To export the messages from Windows Mail in Microsoft Windows Vista, follow these steps:"
I note this comment:
"The date and time of each message are the date and the time that you exported the messages from Windows Mail."
However, I would like to retain the original date and time stamps of all emails transferred.
A friend seemed to think Windows Mail had an option to export to PST file, but the only options I'm getting when I go:
File > Export > Messages
Microsoft Windows Mail.
Q1. a) When exporting to Microsoft Exchange format, where does the output file end up? It just seems to put it in an "Outlook" profile, that I can then see if I start Outlook 2010 on that same PC, but I need it on the other PC. b) Should I then copy that PST file across to the other PC? c) Will it allow me to import it into Office 2013?)
Q2. How could I transfer the emails and retain these timestamps?
