Restore e-mail to Yahoo


S

SueP

Hello:

I am running Windows Vista and have Outlook 2007. In a nutshell, I would
like to see if there is a way to transfer all my messages from Outlook back
to my Yahoo account.

After setting up Outlook to read my Yahoo account messages, I realized this
was a mistake because I liked the capability of being able to access my Yahoo
account from any computer. I stopped the transfer by simply closing Outlook.
Well, I accidentally opened Outlook the other day and walked away to answer
the phone. I came back to find all my messages were transferred into
Outlook. I can't forward them to my Yahoo e-mail account because they'll
just transfer to Outlook, if it's open. Also, I looked and the only import
option that I could find in Yahoo Mail was to import Contacts.

Any suggestions? I've always had good luck finding answers, but didn't see
anything written when I searched 'transfer e-mail to Yahoo'.

Thanks!

First, set outlook to leave on server. Then forward them back to yahoo -
that is the only way, unfortunately.

I'm sorry for sounding confused, but I am using Outlook 2007 at home, so am I
to assume that the reference to a server doesn't apply to me? I don't think
the e-mails are stored on a remote server somewhere, but I could be wrong. I
looked at your posted link, but now I'm really confused :)

One last thing - I have followed all instructions on how to set up the
profile (yahoo's help area) but I still can't send messages. I guess I'm
wondering how I send messages from an e-mail account (i.e. (e-mail address removed)) to
the same (e-mail address removed). I'm not computer illiterate, but this has me stumped
:)

Thanks again.

P.S. Sorry for the recent re-post. I couldn't find a way to view previous
postings, but finally came across it.

Thank you so much for the help. I was looking at my Outlook at work and
confusing the "server" as an Outlook server, not the Yahoo server...hence my
confusion. I also followed instructions (found clearer instructions when I
did another search) on how to correct the send issue.

Thanks for all your help. As usual, this is the best site ever!!!!!!! So
many knowledgable people!!!!!!

If you have accidentally deleted your Outlook emails stored in the form of OLM file then you need not to worry about it you can easily fix all the problems and get back your OLM files with the help of OLM Repair Tool. It is really useful for removing damaged and corrupt files without any technical knowledge.
