How do I save an email from my webmail account into a separate folder on my computer?
Hi boofus ,
To get emails from Webmail on to your computer, you will need to setup your Shaw email address in to a standard mail client such as Windows Mail. Depending on your operating system (eg Windows 10, Mac OS X, etc) most will already have an email client installed, or one can be downloaded for free (such as Thunderbird).
Please see https://community.shaw.ca/docs/DOC-1070#computer for instructions on how to configure your Shaw email with the email client of your choice. For your purpose of creating a backup of your email you will want to use the POP server settings, but ensure you enable the option to leave a copy on the server (so they're still accessible on Shaw Webmail). Once setup, it will download all the messages from your webmail to be archived on your computer.
Hope this helps.
I already have an email client on my computer and can access my emails with Windows 10. What I am wanting to do is copy certain emails and put them in document folders on my computer that are not part of the email system.
What exact email program do you use on the computer and we can look to see if there are options for that.
I use Exchange
Also, while we are talking......
My email account regularly (once a month or so) stops receiving emails. I can still send, but not receive. I have to delete the account and then open a new account again. As well, it will regularly stop showing any pictures that are with the emails and I will again have to delete the account and open a new one again......sometimes it will take 2 or 3 deletes and reopens for it to start showing the pictures. Why does this happen??? AND when I send emails I often get a lot of weird symbols in the writing. They don't show up when I am typing, but appear on the sent emails............most irritating and difficult to read!! Why does this happen??? I have gathered from other forum comments that this is a Windows 10 problem that cannot be solved. What do you know about it? So when I send longer emails I go to my webmail account and send them from there and everything is fine.
Thanks for your help.
