saving emails from computer

I’m using outlook. I want to download and save all my emails that I’ve sent or recieved. and I’d like to save email addresses too.

I want to take them from one computer and eventually put them on another. How can I find and save these emails to a disc?

What version of outlook? There are a couple of different options. You could archive everything up to today which creates an archive folder here:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You will need to ensure all files and folders are visible to see this.

You could also go to File–import and export–export to a file – choose file type desired (.pst is easiest to import back I believe) and do what follows.

Search your C: drive for a file named outlook.pst. That is the default name for the file that contains all your email and contacts.
