How Do I Store E-mails On My Computer?

Saturday, December 28th, 2013 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

How do I store my emails, etc., on my computer rather than the ‘cloud’? I don’t like depending on someone else to keep my info safe; not to mention secure.

Lou you’ll need to get an e-mail client. You could use Microsoft Mail or purchase Microsoft Outlook or use another e-mail client like Thunderbird.  These programs will download your emails from your e-mail provider’s server and into a program on your computer.

Here’s an article with some information on Windows Mail and Thunderbird.

    Hi Cynthia,

    I think, you could have asked one important question. How Lou is sure about security of info lying in the PC surfing on net? And, what about hard drive failures that can happen without any warning? Coming to think about risks, one can come out with a long list of vulnerabilities.If anyone wants to secure information, the only way is to have more than one backup and securing them properly too.

    To my little knowledge, it is not possible to have any iron clad guarantee for any arrangement.
