Copies of Sent emails



Hi. Hoping you can answer this one... Is there a way to save copies of sent emails to an external drive? I have had my computer crash and want to set up something so that all of my emails (sent and received) are backed up on my external hard drive. I did have them backed up before in a security program, but it turned out that the security program was what caused my computer to crash, so I want to save them in a separate file apart from the backup in the security program I have now.

Thanks so much for any help you can provide.

Mike,

Glad to hear it. They probally just wanted to try and weed out any
obvious problems before doing something drastic like the reset. However
that is a bit of time for pros.

Windows Mail Sent Files Missin
Can anyone help me with the following problem. While in Windows Mail my sent
and deleted message files appear to be empty. When you view the properties
it indicates that there are indeed a number of files available. The only way
I can view my sent or deleted e-mails is to navigate to the storage file.

I am experiancing the same problem within my Windows Media Player. I have
discussed this with my ISP and they advise many other Vista users are having
the same problems.

Hi Mike,

I don't know for Media Player.
In Windows Mail, check and see if you have* Show all Messages* selected
in the Views bar. (see circled in red below)

137

If you don't see the Show all Messages, then right click the top blue
bar and check Views bar. (see circled in red below)

138

Hope this helps you,
Shawn

No. I wish it was that simple. Show all messages is definitly on. I spent 2
sessions with Dell tech support with no solution found. I did concluded
however, that the problem is isolated to a single user account on the same
machine. Just happens it is the administrator account. I am waiting for
another technical session later this week. Thanks for your reply Brink.

OK,

Well since you can view them when you go to the message folder
location, check and make sure Windows Mail is pointed to the messsage
folder to.

Here's how:
1. Open Windows Mail
2. Click on Tools
3. Click on Options
4. Click on Advanced tab
5. Click on Maintenance button. (bottom right)
6. Click on Store Folder button (circled in red below)

153

7. Make sure the full path is the same as above with your username not
mine(Administrator), or the full path of where your viewing them from.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Nope. Checked this too. I can navigate to the stored file and review the
sent messages using windows exployer. The pivot file that communicates the
content of these messages must be corrupt or something. My problem is, I
don't know how to fix it. I have checked other user accounts on the same
machine and there Windows Mail is performing correctly. Again, thanks for
your post Shawn.

The reset instructions worked. My account is up and running like normal. It
is a shame that I spent nearly 2.5 hours on the phone with Dell Reps that
stumbled around like misguided children. Thanks for your help Shawn.
