Hi everyone,

I would like to be able to send an entire email folder that can be saved to an outlook account on the receiving end. I would like to have it as simple as possible as it is for my boss who doesn't want to go through the steps of forwarding, or exporting then zipping, etc. Does anyone have any ideas about programming a solution? I haven't done Visual Basic in awhile, but am capable. Any direction you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I can't help you with a programmed solution, but if you just want to send a folder you could create a new PST File (File | New | Outlook Data File), copy the folder you want to send from the default store into that new PST file, then close that new PST file (right-click the root of it and Close). Once it's closed you could e-mail that PST file as an attachment.

I assume these folks aren't on the same Exchange server?

You can easily accomplish this task using solution based on OutlookFreeware.com free tools.

Option 1.

You can export required folder to PST using:

After that send it as attachment and open on the recipient's side. You can use it in-place or merge using this free tool:

Option 2.
