    It's a great idea to keep user data off C: - but in this case, as far as I know, not possible.
    How to move location of Mail App mail storage to another drive

    This is where they are:
    If you go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\, open the folder that starts with "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps", open the folders \LocalState\Indexed\LiveComm inside that, then select the folder with the email you want to look at, then one folder down you'll see two folders, "Mail" and "People". Select the one you want, and then a few more folders down you'll .eml files for each of its stored emails/contacts.

    I gave up on MS mail programs after Outlook Express -> Windows Mail -> nothing.. and use Thunderbird. That keeps its data in a rational location.

    Thanks for your replies. I agree Win 10 Mail poor compared with Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail, I think the best route I should take is use Thunderbird.
