Sorry I asked this one twice but I have raised another question.

Please can you tell me how I move all rec'd + sent Outlook 2013 email (including archived) from an old to a new computer running Outlook 2016 and the same OS WIN 7?

Expert:  GeekGal replied 6 months ago.
I'm so sorry for my delayed response. If you will click on the three lines in the upper right portion of Firefox screen and then click on Option (the gear icon) and then sync, you will see the option to create a firefox account or to sign in with an existing one. If you don't have one, create one, and then sign in with that same account on your new computer. Once you do that all of your firefox settings including your favorites will transfer. Please give me just a few minutes to prepare detailed instructions for moving your Outlook emails.
