In Outlook 2010 we're trying to export GDPR confirmation emails. When selecting all emails and dragging them to a folder on the desktop, the mails stop copying at 129 items. I was not able to find a source why Outlook or Windows behaves this way.

It's also not possible to export to msg, only to pst, xls and Access. I did find however a lot of tools that can convert pst to msg but none of them were free.

Is there another way to do this?

  • Dragging the messages out of Outlook into a folder creates .msg files. Have you tried this? – music2myear Jun 12 '18 at 15:43
  • Yes, but they stop at 129 items. – user2827958 Jun 13 '18 at 6:35
  • Can you select a message in the message list, then go to File > Save as to save the mail as .msg? – Yuki Sun Jun 13 '18 at 7:02
  • @YukiSun No, only to txt – user2827958 Jun 13 '18 at 12:42
  • What if dragging fewer messages each time instead of "selecting all"? – Yuki Sun Jun 14 '18 at 1:46
