How do I save emails onto a USB

Resolved Question:

I am a novice to my laptop and to computers in general. I need to provide a USB with approx. 500 saved emails to another firm (we are consulting with another firm and need to exchange the info)
Can you please tell me how do I do this? They are all in a designated email folder but I am lost as to how to save them onto the usb.

Hi !!

So here is how you can do it.

You need to first download outlook express which is a free product from microsoft.
LINK for Outlook Express .

Then setup your email account in it. This will sync it with your email account on the website and all your emails will now be alwo available on your local computer.

Then take a backup of emails in outlook express.
This LINK will show you how to do that.

Then give the backup file to your customer/anyone you want. They can use the same Link to see instructions on how to get the emails back from the back up.

Let me know if you have any questions.
