Is it possible to move my emails to USB?
Hello to community and thanks for this Excellent Job.
Installed and working fine on 2 computers.

I know that there is a "Store Folder" option on outlook express settings, where i can chenge the location where emails are stored.

One simple question: I need to change the store folder to a usb drive so i can take my emails from one computer to another. Should i try it?

Hello John,
Yes you can do that. You can change the store folder from oe settings and set your usb flash (or any other type of external drive).

Pros:
You can have your emails when moving from one pc to another.
You have your emails on your pocket and not on any computer (security).

Cons:
The drive will be good to be be usb3 (Fast) and your coumputers of course must support usb3. This is important, otherwise outlook express may be a bit slow when reading and sending emails (depending on usb type).
You must NEVER remove the usb drive when outlook express is running, otherwise email folders may corrupt and you may lose data.

If you decide to do that, frequent backups will be a good idea because there is always a possibility to remove your usb drive accidentally when oe is running.
