Serious help needed with emails

(1/3) > >>

I am trying to get all my W4L stuff on the big desktop and have succeeded but for emails.  I would like the desktop to only have W4Lemails (I have at least 2 other addresses.)

I use the program Outlok in Microsoft Office.  Outlook on the desktop is still as it was when I was running a company from it, 5 + email addresses, most don't even exist  and thousands of addresses and emails  I would like to
A) clear Outlook so it is brand new and doesn't repopulate
B) find another program to use that is similar

I have Office 365 .  The W4L email is Pop3.  Strictly not IMAP I am instructed

It is a bit urgent as the laptop that has the W4L address is going to the computer club to have memory added.  I can access the emails on webmail but that is incredibly clunky

Tried many times with help from Gandy-Draper and can,t get the address onto a tablet or ipad

Clare Shirley:
So have you deleted the accounts on outlook

and then delete all the emails from the accounts you no longer use

Which version of windows are you running?

Must admit I haven't I was hoping for a reset as it will all take ages.  W7

Clare Shirley:

Take a look at backing up ( search "outlook backup tool" if not already installed) and then save/restore from a usb microdrive. You should be able to select which types of file / folders you need. (.pst suffix to the file names usually).
