Hope this works for first time use.
I am using Shaw web mail with windows 7 on my new PC. In the past with windows XP and OE I could save important emails to "My Documents" file. Haven't found a way to do this on webmail. Please help.
Hi there firstname.lastname@example.org
You should be able to recreate that sort of setup on Windows 7, just in a slightly different way. There are a few different points to consider here:
When using Webmail, you're interacting directly with our server, so there isn't a way to simply move emails off of there into your My Documents folder. You can, however, create custom folders within Webmail to separate and store emails in. Taking this a step further, there is also the option of exporting the contents of Webmail and storing that on your computer: How to import/export contacts, calendars and accounts in Webmail
I think though, that a more practical solution would be to use Windows Live Mail on your computer, and configure your email account in there. Outlook Express is retired, and Windows Live Mail is basically the new version of it. This is likely installed on your computer already, and if not, can be downloaded here: Windows Essentials: Other Programs
Here is a document to help with configuring that program: Windows Live Mail 2011
I hope that helps!
