Previously I have an option to check my text messages in outlook.

When i tried with the link it is opening my outlook mails.

Is there any way to check my text messages or to backup?

There is a separate messaging app which will allow you check your text messages or SMS.

Go to all apps list, open /messaging app.

For backing up messages you can use the app Transfer My Data by Microsoft.


Not anymore it seems. Maybe it'll come back.

There's another way

You can ask Cortana to sync messages (notifications) between the phone and computer, then you can reply to messages from the computer.

  1. Open Cortana
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Enable Send notifications between devices
