    Hi everyone ;) , i'm new to this forum and I need a little bit of help. o_O

    I don't know if this is possible; but does anyone know if there is a free program or service that can transfer (forward) all or selected messages from one hotmail account to another (preserving the headers too!)

    If possible....not only preserving the headers but the time that they were sent. Although it's not important...it would be nice to keep the emails as original as possible.

    Any feedback is MUCH appreciated. :cool:

    I have always believed that the header stays with the document when it has been forwarded, that a new header is added on. I just confirmed this by forwarding my an e-mail to myself. The forwarded message had two headers.

    I don't want a header added on to the original one, because with the new header there is also a new 'Reply to:'.

    I want something that can transfer all my messages regarding Proxomitron (I need them) from my old hotmail account to my new one and keep them as original as possible. For example, if I want to reply to one of proxo messages then I want it to go to the person that sent me the message originally and not just my old account.

    Thank you for your feedback, but I have recently found a website that will provide the tools to 'redirect' email and explain how to do it too. The instruction are for migrating from Hotmail to Gmail so I got myself a flash new Gmail account now :eek: :p

    Could a moderator please close this topic, thank you.
