.FOL File Extension

Saved message folder

Question: What is an FOL File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an FOL file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an FOL file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .FOL extension are known as Saved message folder files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the FOL extension, please let us know.

How to open a FOL file:

The best way to open an FOL file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the FOL file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the FOL file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

    I recently exported on Windows Mail almost all the emails I had on my Windows Vista computer to a new folder in my Documents folder.

    I then copied this new folder onto my flash drive. Then I tried to import these emails onto my XP computer outlook express but failed due since the XP computer can not open files with the .fol extension. So how do I solve this problem.

    I have a Windows 7 laptop and use Windows Live Mail. The .fol file format is used in Windows Mail that went along with Windows Vista. Unfortunately, I no longer have a computer with Windows Vista, just XP. I exported my mail messages and storage folders properly from Windows Live Mail before I completely re-formatted my hard drive and started from scratch. When I went to import my messages and storage folders from where I stored the files, I realized they were in the .fol format and not the proper .iaf file format that only Windows Live Mail recognizes.
