  • Select Save file and finish the process with OK.

The file will now be saved on your computer in the download folder, unless you have another download location set in your browser.

If you selected only one email, it will be saved as a .eml file. If you selected several emails, they will be saved as a .zip file.

Please Note #

When saving several emails or entire folder contents, the resulting zip file is always named mails.zip. To avoid accidentally overwriting it during another backup, change the file name of the zip file after saving it on your computer.
