    Saving emails with attachments


    Hi

    I use Windows Live Mail installed on my PC.

    Is there some way I can save the emails, including any attachments
    to a folder on an external dive?

    Thanks

    Yes you can. Windows Live Mail stored all your mail messages with extention .eml by default in :
    C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\YourMailAccount\inbox

    If a mail message has attachments, it is also included in the message. Just copy these files to the external drive.

    FYI, You can also change the mail storage location to another drive:
    File->Options->Mail->Advanced->Maintenance->Store Folder

    does that include files in the Deleted or Bin folder of the account?
