that will depend on the number of mails
for a couple, just mail them forward
for more - i would  export and import them
you can also copy the whole pst file and delete the unwanted ones….

If its an exchange account it will be in the mailbox and a local copy with be stored.

You can either create a folder and move the mail into there and then export just that folder to a PST file and either open it on the other machine or import it.

Just select the emails you want and click Ctrl button while you drag and drop the emails to a local folder in a USB thumb drive or network folder.

Then, in another PC, drag and drop the emails the emails from the local folder of the thumb drive or network drive to Outlook 2016.


Thank you!!
