Time to move Hotmail messages to your local computer.
Thank you for using the beta of Hotmail offline support from Outlook Express.
Our system has indicated that your current mailbox size is 2.3MB. You are allowed 2.0MB of storage space on the Hotmail server. You may choose to archive and store Hotmail messages on your personal computer by using local folders. This way you can save as many messages as you want!
To archive your messages, follow these steps:
To add a folder, click the File menu, point to New and then click Folder.
In the Folder name text box, type in a folder name such as "Archived Hotmail Messages".
Select Local Folders as the location to create the new folder, then click OK.
Go to your Hotmail inbox folder in Outlook Express, select and highlight all messages you would like to store on your personal computer.
Drag the set of messages to the folder you just created within Local Folders.
The messages will be downloaded and transferred to your local computer.
