After I got OE working again I discovered that all of the folders I made did
not reinstall.
But the folders are still in WLM. How can I transfer these folders from my
WLM to my OE?
thank you,
Bob Burns

[Adding WLMail newsgroup to the crosspost]

CrystalBall© sez...

While they're available in WLMail, the separate set of Hotmail-specific
folders you're used to having in OE (illustration:
http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/i/tr/cms/contentPics/t01220030403shu01_C.gif)
are no longer available now that WebDAV support has ended and you're
accessing the account via POP3.

All of the folders remain available via the webmail page:
http://mail.live.com.

More FAQs here:
http://windowslivehelp.com/solutions/dav/archive/2009/05/04/frequently-asked-questions.aspx

If there's a message in, e.g., your Junk Mail folder that you need or want
in OE, Move the message to your inbox (i.e., on the webmail page). The next
time OE polls the account, the message will download into OE's Inbox folder.

Then I could move the messages in the folders I made, like "Bob's Stuff"
into the in box, and it will appear in the in box in OE. Correct?
Then I create the same folder (again) in OE and move the messages there.
Why didn't I think of that?
Thank you,
Bob

You can download Windows Live Mail and sync all of your Hotmail folders.
download.live.com\wlmail
OE will no longer sync your folders.

He's already got WLMail installed, Ron:

>>>> But the folders are still in WLM.


My CrystalBall© assumed the "folders [he] made" are additional, user-created
folders on the webmail page (http://mail.live.com). When he was accessing
the account via WebDAV, those same folders and their contents showed up in
OE. Now he's accessing the account _in OE_ via POP3 so they're not
there...but they are present in WLMail kos it's synching with & displaying
the webmail folders.

chopperbobby changed from WebDAV to pop3 access in OE.
If you go to http://home.live.com, the page says Windows Live. Click on
Mail and you are going to Windows Live - Mail. chopperbobby would not be
the first to call online Hotmail, Windows Live Mail.

Does your crystal ball say if chopperbobby will make any more posts to this
thread? :)

Gawd, I hope not! (He's had other threads in other newsgroups that were
equally confusing.)
