Download your mail
You can download your mailbox contents from us into a desktop mail client, following the standard setup instructions. From there, your client can export the data to somewhere on disk in a format of your choice.
Some extra configuration to check:
- Make sure your mail client is set up to download data for offline access. This ensures it has a local copy of all your data.
- Make sure your mail client is downloading all your folders. By default, many clients only synchronise the INBOX.
- Make sure your mail client isn't configured to leave large mail or large mail attachments on the server.
