Saving emails & attachments to computer

  tamsin 12:27 01 Aug 2008

I am using WIN XP SP2 & OE 6.0
Please can anyone tell me how I can save emails to my computer and include the attachments, preferably by copying the folder rather than individual emails.
Info would be much appreciated.

If you're using Outlook Express, the emails in it are already saved in your computer, including the attachments. In an OE folder.

Mailstore makes things like that simple; click here

Hi, yes that's a very handy freebie. There are plenty of other email backup solutions around but none that make things so simple and handle so many different clients, well not free at any rate.

If you're just looking for backing up your emails, for security (that's a good thing to be looking at) - then you simply include them in whatever backup program you are using.

You should be backing up ALL your data on a regular basis, not just emails, of course.

Thank you Brundle I have downloaded this program and I shall enjoy the peace of mind as I have a lot of geneology files on my emails. Great suggestion.

I do regular backups but it is better to have a copy of things separately I think.

HI Brundle - I have been away - I loaded Mailstore but it informed me that it only works with Vista. I am still with XP, so I shall look further. Thanks

No it works with XP as well - check out brundle's link on Fri 1/8 at 12.38

Glad people are finding the suggestion useful.

Tamsin; As Sea Urchin said, it works with XP - `it informed you` when - during installation?
