Compress and send my existing email?

Compress and send my existing email?

Hello Comcast Customer support!,


I was wondering if Tech support can "tar" or "zip" / compress my email and send it to me?  I want  to reduce it in size, for obvious reasons.


Thank you in advance!,

Re: Compress and send my existing email?

You would need to use a standalone email program to download it to your computer.. Like windows live mail, outlook, pegasus, etc.


With that program installed and set up you could set it to download mail and delete from server or leave a copy on the server if it is set up as POP.   IMAP will not download mail to your computer so you would need to use POP
