    How to move emails from one Outlook account to another?


    I've heard this is possible, by using Outlook 2013 and exporting all emails to a .pst file, but I added my Outlook account and after it synced everything looks like this:



    Obviously i'm doing something wrong, so I came here to ask for help. I want to move every email I have in my original Outlook account to a new Outlook account I made, because i'm ditching the original's email address for a new one. Maybe i'm completely off and this is impossible xD

    Thank you for the help

    First time i'm seeing that tutorial, gonna try it. Thanks for the link

    Let me ask this, though: if this does work, would the emails appear in my new Outlook account on the Outlook program or the browser site? Or both?

    I missed the part about a new account. Not sure how it is going to work that way. It will show up under your old account. I think the only way to do it is forward everything from the old to the new.

    You may be able to edit the account email address once you transfer everything like the link shows.

    If I just forward every email I have on my old account to the new one, all will have the same creation date. I'd lose every single original date of each, and I really don't want to do that.

    So there really isn't a way to do it, huh? Like I wanted to, to show every message from the old but in the new account on the browser site just as if I were looking at the old account (dates, etc.)...

    Getting into something I've never done before to be honest. Usually there is some way. Found this: Rename Email Accounts and Data Files in the Folder List
