Is there a *special* place or folder that you save your special emails? I have found that I need to save my emails at an online address because of my computer problems. I just mail them to a special Yahoo address that I set up for that purpose. Where do you save your special emails?

I have a special folder within my email named registrations. Any website that you have to join will send signup details, such as password, username, or referral links. Then if I get some type of email from a friend that is too cute to toss, and there are a lot of them, I put them in the drafts folder. I also have a file for people pics that have been sent to me. Hey, Sherri! Great discussion! I haven't seen one like this yet. Jodigirl

Yes, but the only folder that is already there is drafts. You have to make new folders for the others. I have also made them in my yahoo mail, so I can keep track of things.

But you lose Outlook Express when your computer crashes.

I see that you use Outlook Express. I have two options for you to consider: 1) Use OEBackup. Only the "Quick Backup" version is currently online, which I have used in the past and found relatively simple to use, even without looking at any instructions. Get it here: http://www.oehelp.com/OEBackup/Default.aspx 2) Do you think you would be able to adjust to using a different client if it would enable you to save everything in a single folder? If so, I recommend you switch to Thunderbird Portable. You simply download a setup program that extracts all the files to a single, consolidated folder. All your e-mails, addresses, and other related information are stored in here. Even better, Thunderbird makes it easy to import your account information and address book from OE. There are lots of extensions available for Thunderbird (including the portable version), such as Lightning, a plugin that adds a calendar function like that in MS Office Outlook. Using a portable client offers you the advantages of running your e-mail client from a flashdrive and taking it with you wherever you go (which I do myself); using secure SSL/TLS session encryption from a public computer without any hassle in setup; and easily making full copies of your entire client, complete with address book and messages, allowing you to view your archives right off a CD!!!

Each email site has a section for folders. Just look for folders on the left side of your screen. There should then be an option to add/create new folders. Call it "special," and put all of your special emails there!

I only use online email accounts, even my service provider has an online one, so everything I want to save is in folders there. This also give much better virus protection because I just read my email online and it is not downloaded to my computer.
