Tips and warnings
- IncrediMail will save your e-mail messages and data in a folder named "IncrediMail Transferred Data" in your chosen save location. Transfer the folder and its contents to removable storage media, such as an external hard drive or a CD data disk, so that you can copy the data to your new or upgraded computer later on.
