Re: moving e-mails to thumb drive

If you mean trying to drag and drop emails from the webmail UI to a flash drive-------no, you can't.  There is no way to copy webmail to a computer or external drive directly.  You would need to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail or some other to have the emails on your computer.  Then you could use whatever backup utility you have to save them to the flash drive.
