How do I back up my emails? *** This post and feature is only applicable for users who created a liveBooks account before 08.06.2015

Email back up is necessary when you want to delete an email address or want to change email providers (ex: during the go live process). By saving your important emails on your computer you make sure no information gets lost.

To archive messages, create a local folder on your computer (not on the mail server) and drag messages into that folder. This will remove those messages from the server and you will still be able to view them at a later time.

If you are using Apple Mail, click on "inbox" and at the bottom, click the " + " sign. This will prompt you to enter in a folder name; be sure to place it "on my mac" versus making it part of the IMAP account. The folder will appear on the left side under the trash box. Drag messages to that new folder so they are moved off of the server.

This process of backing up email messages onto your computer's hard drive using Apple Mail is also discussed in 'What do I do if my mailbox is full?'.
