    Folders(emails) to another source. eg external hard drive.I can only copy or
    move a folder from "Personal folders"and relocate it in Mail Folders ,the
    same source. (MicrosoftOulook) Can you tell me how to save these emails on an
    external hardrive or burn them to cd?

  2. You can do that.
    Go to the File -> Import and Export. Here select Export to a file ->
    Personal Folder File...

    You may want to ask that question in the Outlook newsgroup.
