Since i upgraded to Windows 10 in October 2016 I have not been able to send new email or forward email from outlook from my fslife email account on my pc. I have spoken with both EE and Windows but neither can resolve the problem. I am sure it has something to do with the windows upgrade as I can still send and receive emails from my ipad using my fslife account.
I have read various posts and as suggested changed my smtp settings but to no avail.
As orange/fsmail in ending in May I was hoping to forward emails that I have saved, to my gmail account. I am aware that I can redirect all new emails to my gmail account which I have done but its the older ones that I have saved in folders that I wish to forward on.
If anyone has a solution I would be most grateful.
Thanks in anticipation

Who is your ISP? If not EE, have a read of: EE/Orange eMails: Sending From Outside EE Home Broadband Network .
Why bother forwarding them to GMail when you already have them on your PC in Outlook?
How are you redirecting all new emails to your GMail account? Is that by Message Rules in Outlook?

Thank you XRaySpeX for your response. My ISP is EE.
I was under the impression that I could not access my mail in outlook using my fslife email address after 31st May- if I can then i dont have a problem keeping them where they are.
I am redirecting to my gmail account from gmail settings following the instructions below from EE:
Here's how to import into Gmail:
Follow these steps:

Ah, OK, you are using GMail Import to pull them into GMail from the Orange server.
Any emails you have in your email client on your PC stays on your PC even after Orange email closes. Only the Orange servers are going, not anything already on your PC, Dunno where you got that impression. Your PC reads from the Orange server, not the other way round.
