Hi guys,

I'm hoping someone can help me.

I'm wanting to move the Outlook emails on one of my profiles from LAPTOP1 to LAPTOP2.

Both LAPTOP1 and LAPTOP2 run on Windows 7.

By moving it from 1 to 2 will I loose things like sent emails and all the folders plus flagged emails etc?

Any help would be really welcome.

Thank you :)

Hi there dreday2,

Sorry for the delay, I guess the TECHS have a lot on their hands at the malware forum.
Anyways, I see 2 options:
  • Making a (temporary) account at www.mail.com for example, and just mailing everything back and forwards. Might be a lot of work, can't go wrong.
  • Using Explorer and an USB-stick or something, copy the data files. The data files all should have an .dst extension (filename.dst), you could use Start - Search to locate them. Make sure you place these files in the exact same corresponding directories on laptop 2.


Good luck :)
