BACKING UP EMAIL

BACKING UP EMAIL

I want to keep a back up file of my comcast EMails in case they are lost or if I switch to another E Mail provider.

 

How do I do that and I want to keep a copy of all my on an external drive

Re: BACKING UP EMAIL

Best way to do that is to:

 

  1. Use an email address from one of the national providers that are not also ISPs (Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, etc.) That way the address is portable and can be used from any system anywhere.
  2. Use an email program (Thunderbird, Mac Mail, Windows live, etc.), so you have a local copy.
  3. Keep your system backed up, in case of disaster.
