How do I save all my e-mail folders on my own hard drive? (or keep copies)

Posted

Firefox has been putting my older e-mails in TRASH without me asking; so I want to save all my incoming e-mail ON MY HARD DRIVE locally, as backup.

Is this possible?

IGNORE ALL THIS - it is YAHOO!Mail I need to deal with. My Mistake - SORRY !

For reference, your email provider is whomever your email address ends with (gmail.com, yahoo.com, aol.com, etc.)
