    Old Email account closing - how can i save received emails.


    Hello.

    I have had an email acc with virgin.net for some 30 plus years. About a year or so ago I was informed it was about to close and I would lose all my saved emails.
    I have tried to save some about a year ago but am hoping there is a simple one button press that will save all my folders across to my new email address.

    The Virgin.net address is still receiving emails and working well but I must believe it will suddenly just stop working.

    I have taken some advice from Virgin Media and others but it does seem a somewhat complex operation

    So to that end what is the best [and easiest] way to save all my old emails across to my new account.

    Regards

    :)

  3. Microsoft Alias Account Email Issue

    I am trying to change the primary account email address but am receiving an error that lists "the email address is already taken".

    Here's the deal, I created the account I want to use today years ago with an old college email and I believe it will be expiring soon and I want to update the email to my gmail account. Problem is that I also mistakenly created another separate account with
    the gmail email address a few months ago. I realized this and so I requested the the newer gmail microsoft account be closed so I can update the email. I received the "account closed" email this morning and when I tried to add that email (gmail) to the old
    microsoft account, I got the same error that lists the email as being taken.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Do you have a mail client on your machine such as Outlook 2010?

    You need a PC based email client Outlook, Thunderbird or something similar, set up your account and "Archive" your emails in to PST files, with so many I would consider braking them down into 5 year chunks; up to 2017, up to 2012, etc its not difficult but will take some time.

    Old Email account closing - how can i save received emails.

    Thanks Jimmyb.
    Can I ask you a couple of questions.
    1/ I have some other email addresses:- a Gmail and a plus.com one from my PlusNet acc. will both of those work following your steps above?
    2/ Is there any address type I can use that wouldn't be effected by provider closures ie I would just add the existing address into a new acc provider.

    EDIT EDIT EDIT Looking up my WHICH report they say to use a web acc as this won't tie you to a provider, is there a down side to doing this.

    Best

    Doing some more on Google I found this >>> Is Outlook free with Windows 10?

    This new Windows 10 Mail app, which comes preinstalled along with Calendar, is actually part of the free version of Microsoft's Office Mobile productivity suite. It's called Outlook Mail on Windows 10 Mobile running on smartphones and phablets, but just plain Mail on Windows 10 for PCs.22 Jul 2015.
    Looks like that answers my previous question about me finding an email client just called Mail.

    I'll keep searching.

    I have my own email address and domain, its not free but it means as I switch ISP I don't have to switch email address. I use to use POP 3 email protocol which means everything is stored on my PC, upside I have control, down side it is on a single PC, though you can configure it not to delete from server, other downside you need to backup or they are all lost. I have now moved to IMAP (both are just protocols, same email same provider) these are all stored on the server so I can access from multiple devices, and all see exactly the same thing. However about every six months I still archive my emails, taking them off the server and saving (and backing up) elsewhere.
    If you do not have outlook there are lots of free clients out there, Mozilla Thunderbird being just one have a look HERE.
