Re: saving emails to usb

There is no way to save webmail directly to a computer or external drive.  You need to enable the account in a desktop email client to do anything like that.  Comething like Outlook, Windows Live Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird.  Then the client could be backed up to an external drive using a backup program, depending on your operating system.  I use Mac Mail (my desktop is a Mac), and I use the Time Machine utility on it to backup to an external hard drive.  I'm not sure what is available for Windows machines in that respect.  But if you are using Windows, the email files would be saved in the profile of whatever client you elect to use.
