Exporting Email

Jump to: navigation, search

Messages archived into MailStore Home can be exported out again in order to access them in your favorite mail client.

You can export messages via a number of different methods, each described below.

Setting up message exporting is similar to setting up archive profiles in that you will have to tell MailStore Home where to save messages, and you will have to choose what messages to export.

Note that you can export from a previously created Saved Search Folder, so if you want to export very specific messages, first create a Search Folder then creating an Export Email profile to export those messages to the appropriate destination.

Exchange, IMAP and GMail Mailbox

These options will allow you to export messages to an Exchange mail server , an IMAP mail server or a GMail mailbox respectively. MailStore Home will create a folder structure on the server and export messages into the MailStore Home folder structure.

Note that after exporting messages, you may need to refresh the folder list in your mail client, or you may need to subscribe to the newly created folders. Please refer to your mail client's documentation for specific instructions on how to see the new folders.

Email Address via SMTP

This feature will allow you to send archived messages (via SMTP) to an email address. This is essentially like forwarding archived messages from your mail client, and is the only way of restoring messages to a POP3 server.

Email Clients

MailStore Home can export messages into several types of mail clients. Note that you must already have the appropriate mail client installed and configured before starting the export process.

Directory (File System)

This feature will export archived messages to a directory on your computer. You can export messages into EML files which can be read by many mail clients and even some mail servers, or you can export into Microsoft Outlook MSG files for use with Microsoft Outlook.
