Dear Marilyn,

Thank-you for the helpful links. I managed to read the one about the Outlook Hotmail Connector, but I only skimmed it and didn't see any specific reference to actually moving the Hotmail email folders and contents to the Desktop, although I need to read it again to see if I can do this and move the data to Outlook instead. I have been avoiding learning about Outlook 2007, but I have no excuse not to learn the program, now that I am getting excellent advice from the Techies at MS. The other two links sound like they are going to be exactly what I need. I never would have found these on my own...I get lost in the blizzard of information, but I'm learning! I am copying and pasting your answer into a Word document and placing it in my Hotmail/Outlook binder of MS Techie Wizard Lessons. I will let you know, when I read the articles, what worked for me.

Sincerely,

Electrongal

This is Outlook 2010 info but it is pretty similar and a good guide for you.

Use a Windows Live Hotmail account in Outlook

http://office.microsoft.com/client/helppreview14.aspx?AssetId=HA010354935&lcid=3081&NS=OUTLOOK&Version=14&tl=2&respos=1&CTT=1&queryid=50ec5c22d52544acb9b7b44b85de55dc

Once you setup your Hotmail account you can save the received E-mails by using the File Menu in Outlook and the Save As option. If you login to your Hotmail Account you have the same option.

Outlook stores your E-mails received direct from your ISP at C:\Users\usernamexxxx\Documents\Outlook Files as a .pst file OR here,

C:\Users\usernamexxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook as a .pst, depending on what version you have (see article).

Any that come from Hotmail (or other mail) via Outlook get stored at C:\Users\usernamexxxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook as an .ost file.

Where does Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 save my information and configurations?

Are you referring to me as Marilyn, if so that is the wrong name (and wrong gender)?
