Saving PM messages.

Postby Prime » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:10 pm

Hi all,

Is there an easy way of downloading all private messages in a single file? Though it may complicate things that I have a couple of full saved mailboxes too.

Ideally it would be useful if I could download them in such a way as to be able to import them into something like firefox as individual messages. I may be able to fudge it with a single text file that I can do some processing on.....

Cheers.

Phill.

At the bottom of the page you can export as CSV or XML, could you mangle the XML into a form you could import into firefox?

Yeah I had tried the CSV but found it to not be what I needed.

XML looks like it would fir the bill though. Now if there where a way of exporting the whole mailbox rather than having to page through it 50 messages at a time. That would be great.

Cheers.

From my admittedly hazy memory, depending on the CSV structure, you may be able to import it into an outlook pst file.
This might give you a traditional mailbox structure for the PM's depening on how you set the delimiters up

May be worth trying?
