Windows 7: Outlook: Way to forward entire custom folder of emails?

Outlook: Way to forward entire custom folder of emails?

I'm made a folder in which I've collected all emails of a certain topic, with several dozen emails within. I'd like to forward the entire folder to a new address, is there a way to do this?

I contacted Outlook support, but they don't ever respond (not much for "support", I guess).

I assume you are talking about Microsoft Outlook email client, not about the web based Outlook.com email service?

In Ms Outlook you can forward multiple messages quite easily. Do this:
  • Select messages to be forwarded by holding down the CTRL button and selecting messages one by one, or press CTRL + A within a folder to select all messages:

  • Click Forward on Ribbon:

  • All selected email messages are now attached (as attachments) to a new message. Give the recipients email address and send your message:

Thanks, though I'm indeed referring to the browser service.

OK. Just for the future requests and questions: Outlook and Outlook.com are two very different things!

Forwarding multiple messages is not possible using Outlook.com web interface. You need to read your Outlook.com email messages to an email client, then use the client tools to do the forwarding.

Although I am not sure as I am not using it myself, as far as I know also the free Windows Live Mail client, part of Windows Essentials can do this as described in my previous post for Ms Outlook.

Alright, thanks for that information! Is there a way within Outlook, then, to forward a folder as a folder, so that it arrives at its destination as all contained within that folder? That would be a very neat and useful feature.

In Outlook, forwarding multiple messages is as far as I know only possible as described in my first post in this thread.
