I want to switch between two Hotmail (outlook.com) accounts and move all my stored emails to the new account.

Perhaps this was a bit wishful thinking but I can't even seem to forward multiple emails at once?

So I'm happy with either:

  • Moving emails from one Live account to another
  • Forwarding multiple emails at once instead of individually
  • Export/Import of emails

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

If Hotmail supports IMAP, you can use a program like thunderbird or windows live mail and literally drag and drop messages around, I believe. windows.microsoft.com/en-US/hotmail/… – cloneman Oct 22 '12 at 0:50
Thanks, this is what I ended up doing :) – Laoujin Nov 8 '12 at 12:17

I downloaded external mail software (Outlook) where I could easily connect to both my email addresses and move email from one account to the other by drag & dropping the folders/emails.
