I need to download all the emails in a folder from my email account and cant figure out how to do it . I've installed thunderbird and can now see the folder and all the emails in it but cant find a setting that allows me to download copys of them to my computer . I also looked in google but find no help . The emails are very important and i'm concerned that i might mess it up and loose them all . Normaly when i use a new program i just play with it and press buttons to see what happens ...... but in this case i cant afford to do that because i cant afford to loose them . Can someone please help me and tell me how to do it . Thanks .
