Customer Question
I have a Yahoo...

I have a Yahoo email account that syncs and downloads all email to my local Outlook client (for Mac). This Outlook client now has with a significant number of personal mails (7 years), in a detailed folder structure in a .PST, but.....

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Outlook?

I have just had a house file and realised how close I was to losing them all, so I would now like to export all these Outlook mails back into my yahoo account - and keep the Folder structure - how can this be done?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Outlook?

Tried nothing yet - don't want to screw up

Not a question of how long it has been happening... I have an Outlook.PST on my iMac that I want to "export" up to my Yahoo mail account - so as that all of my mail is in the cloud (fully backed-up, accessible from anywhere, etc.)

OK - to allow me to connect to your PC/MAC, you must install remote access software. The software is below, use the "Family and Friends" version. It's free.

Once installed I need the ID and Password ***** displays, i do not need the one you created, I am looking for the one that TeamViewer gives you when you open the program.
Thanks
Kris
