  1. Windows 10 mail - can I delete an email account but save the emails?


    I have a gmail account that I use with Windows 10 mail. I'd like to shut down that account, but still want access to those emails/folders. Do I lose everything if I cancel the gmail account? If so, how can I backup?

    :)

  3. Deleting emails in Windows Mail does not delete emails across all mail clients?

    I have setup my gmail account in Windows 10's standard mail app.

    I would like to make it so when I delete, read, or otherwise modify an email in the Windows 10 client, for that to show across all my other email reading devices.

    For example: When I delete an email on my iPhone, it also is already deleted when I open the mail app on a mac.

    Currently, reading an email or marking it as read does not sync. Deleting an email also does not sync.

    I would like to be able to delete an email on Windows 10 Mail, and have it be deleted across all mail clients, or read and email or so on.

    How do I enable this?

    Windows 10 mail - can I delete an email account but save the emails?

    email account hacked. please help

    I have a yahoo email account that seems to be hacked. Following are hacking activities I have noticed.

    1) Spam emails being sent from my account to my account and my recovery email account.
    2) Recent emails in inbox are missing
    3) New emails in deleted mails folder

    I have reset passwords for both my email account and recovery email account and also re-installed my mac but still spam emails are being sent from my account to my account and my recovery email account.

    My mac was not even turned on when those emails were being sent. No one else knows my password. I do access mail from my iphone and ipad too.

    Its my primary email account please help.

    Thanks
