    Hi there,

    I have two web-based Outlook email accounts. One old, and one new.

    My plan is to migrate all my emails (including those in folders) from my old outlook email account to my new outlook email account.

    But blow me down, with a lot of looking I still can’t figure out how to do it.

    I’m sure there has to be a pretty simple way to migrate emails, without going through the laborious task of individually emailing them to the new account, which really isn’t that much of an option since I have so many!

    I very much appreciate it if someone could give me some information on how to do this

    kind regards Gin

    Use a client like Thunderbird or Outlook if you have that, then add both accounts as IMAP accounts or Outlook if allowed.

    Then you should be able to copy/paste from old to new.

    Hi Couriant,
    Thank you for getting back to me,

    I’m not really familiar with what you mean by “using a client” do you mean, to download and install a piece of software that allows me to download my emails directly to my computer?

    I think this is maybe what you are meaning?

    If so, could I just do this to migrate the emails over on to the new web-based account?

    You see the thing is, I don’t really want to be able to pick up my emails from just one computer,

    I want to be able to read my emails anywhere I like anywhere in the world, I enjoy the convenience of logging on to a web browser and immediately reading my emails without having to go through the hassle of downloading them.

    So if this is possible, as a way to keep the web-based email, then that is okay. Is that what you mean?

    Kind regards Gin

    Yes. You would need to download the software to perform this.

    You can still access the emails online if you use a client, it's just another way to get your email. Nowadays the clients are being synced to the email account online so what you see in the client will match what's online.
