If you do export to an online MAPI account, then you can use another email program that supports MAPI connections and have it download into that program. Another way is to install Thunderbird onto the outlook mail computer and use it's import function. It will import the mail into files which can also be used in Mac computers. All you need to do then is locate the files under the user profile for Thunderbird and directly copy them onto other media to save.
I have lots of email that I'd like to keep until I can throw out some of it . I read instructions that said to put in a flash drive, went to File, Export, Messages. Then a box said: "This will export messages from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange" and I said "ok" . and the next message said: The export could not be performed. A error occurred while initializing MAPI.
So what do I do now? I don't plan to putting all the messages on my Mac, but want to be able to keep some on another computer. Sentimental value, ya know!
Help appreciated!! Peggy
