    Dear all,

    Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.

    At the moment, I am changing my e-mail account from Yahoo to Outlook. I have been able to change a lot of things, but am puzzled as to how you can export messages from Yahoo to a new account. Please Note, I have already set my Yahoo account to auto-forward NEW e-mails to be forwarded to my Outllok account.

    I am asking as to how to go about exporting my already-sent e-mails from Yahoo to my new account?

    Any answers would be most welcolme,

    Yours

    Hello, go to the Settings gear and select "Connected Accounts" to import your old email. Click the "Other email accounts" link to launch the import wizard.

    Dear Poposich,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Unforunately, when I do this, I get a message that tells me The Export Could Not Be Carried Out. It then goes on to say something about POP and IMAP. Perhaps I should try to change the type of access that I have in the Yahoo account itself? How can this be done, do you know?

    Yours
