saving e-mail to an externl disk or burning to a disk

Transfering - I have used up my 10 GB of e-mail space. Is there any way I can transer the 10 GB of e-mail to an external disk?

The only way to do that would be to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail or some other, then you could put that on an external hard drive using a backup utility.

Re: saving e-mail to an externl disk or burning to a disk

Emails can be saved as .eml files with the new format. I only experimented with it a little bit. If one email is checked in the list, or if you're in an open email, there's a save as file option if you click the more actions icon. On my computer, if I check more than one email in the list and save, it saves them in a zip file. I normally use Mozilla Thunderbird, and save selected emails as text files.
