  1. Email storage for windows live account and outlook.


    Please can you help? I use windows 10 on both laptop and desktop Pc. I have a microsoft login account and use Outlook (paid subscription) software. I would like to know for peace of mind if my emails are stored in my microsoft account or on each device when I log in? My reasoning is I would like to download and export my emails to either and external HD device or cloud base situation. Can you tell me if my account is actually cloud based and therefore saved already or located in my user\app section in C:/ but I haven't found it in C:\user\appdata\local\microsoft\windows mail*Redface

    :)

  2. How to synchronize Outlook 2013 and Windows Phone 8

    I have 4 different windows live accounts that I set up under 4 different POP3 email addresses.....I do not receive any email to these email addresses through my Windows Live/Outlook accounts....when I log into any of these windows live accounts (the ones
    that use a POP3 email address), I get NO email there at all.

    I sync 2 of these windows live accounts to Outlook on my computer so I can get the contacts and appointments associated with these accounts to my windows live accounts and sync them to my phone. Since there is no email being delivered to these windows live
    accounts, no email ever gets synced to Outlook on my computer for these windows live accounts.

    But I download email for 1 of my POP3 accounts directly to Outlook because I have set up a separate POP3 email account in Outlook

    If you log into your Windows Live account, using a POP3 email address and if email from the POP3 email address is being delivered to the windows live account, it is being delivered there either because windows live is set up to retrieve email or because the
    POP3 account is set up to forward email to that account.

    Who is the ISP for your POP3 account?

    what is error message 80072F06 and how do I react?

    Is your email address an @Hotmail, @live or @outlook account, or is it an Exchange email through your employer? Also, is this the primary account on the phone (labeled as Windows Live) or is it a secondary email account?

    Regards,

    In Windows Live Mail - click on File - select Export email _ select Email Messages. I do this periodically to my external HD.

  6. Thanks Clint for your time and assistance. Maybe I wasn't clear. I don't use windows live mail with microsoft thinking of removing. I use chrome browser and outlook mail to receive my mail. I have a microsoft login account, which is my outlook mail account. I have looked again for any signs that can help me but still cannot locate where my actual mail is stored. Could it be in the cloud perhaps.

    I suspect you've muddied the waters a bit with your Outlook (paid subscription) software statement.

    Yes, if you're referring to a Live.com account (Outlook.co.uk, Hotmail.co.uk, etc.) paid subscription to avoid advertisements -- and viewing it by going to that web page in Google Chrome, your messages aren't being transferred to your local drive at all. They remain stored on that web service.

    However, if you're using the Outlook application (Outlook 2016, Office 365 Outlook, etc.) to access that Live.com account, then your messages are usually downloaded to your .OST or .PST files on your local drive -- and therefore should be backed up regularly. (Sorry, I don't use Outlook any more, so I can't advise which directory to inspect for those files. Your Outlook settings should be the start for that treasure hunt.)

    C:\user\appdata\local\microsoft\windows mail is a directory used by W10 Mail (UWP) application, but you're apparently not using that application.

  11. Thank you for this.This has eased my mind. I don't agree with microsoft charging for a yearly subscription to office and I much prefer what I have which is how you have eloquently put in your reply.
