New Outlook
« on: Sunday 26 November 23 11:50 GMT (UK) »
I have just started using the New Outlook  after using Live Mail. I had constant reminders that it was being phased out.
I have managed to import all my contacts, but there are none of my storage folders showing.
I can`t find the instructions given  so sent Microsoft a message. Apparently the Import feature isn`t included on New Outlook.
How can I get around this , I have lots of stuff I need to keep  from old emails.

Have a look at Thunderbird, it is open source like Firefox web browser.

Thunderbird says it is free, but you cannot start to download until you give them a donation; so it is not free!

I use GMX - which is definitely free!

However I am not sure whether you can transfer your folders?
Maybe via Cloud Storage?
