Moving saved emails to a disc

I would like to move a saved file of 123 entries onto a disc, The file is on my email page saved under mailboxes.  Is it possible that this can be done.  The are just to many entries saved here and I'd like to have some empty space to save.  These  emails are part proof of purchase emails that I can go back to for proof of purchasing and when they ware made. If you have any other suggestions on how I could possible do anything with these e mails  I would greatly appreciate all  suggestions,.



Re: Moving saved emails to a disc

To save emails on your computer or an external drive, you would need to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail or some other.  There is no way to save webmail directly to an external drive or the computer.
