    You can copy the "contents" of the outlook folder to a folder you create

    on your "E:" drive.

    Outlook folders are not file system objects and you can't copy the folder

    itself to the file system. All of Outlook's "folders" are kept in the same

    file. You could move all your folders (at one time) to another drive by

    moving the location of your folders file. You can also do what Bob I

    suggested and copy the contents (as .msg files) of a folder to a folder on the

    drive. Explain what you wish to do more completely and we may be able to

    help. Include your Outlook version and account type.

    My outlooks is 2003, I am not sure whta you me by account. I have a folder

    with many emails that I would like to copy to my E drive so I can give these

    to another person. I am not all that savy on computers so anything you tell

    me to do has to be step by step.

    In order to achieve that, you should create a new Personal Folders file

    on your E: drive (File | Data File Management).

    Next, copy the folder to the new PST file. Use right-click drag-and-drop

    to choose between Copy and Move.

    Right-click and close the new PST file, then give it to the other person.
