anyone know of an email client that automatically saves email into files- maybe txt or docs. doesnt matter. it just pisses me off that whenever i reformat i lose all my crap that i forgot to export from outlook express, and outlook express takes forever to save it all (like 10 clicks per email...), and the exportation function seems to work, but importation always *****es about somethin and then i lose all my older mail. also is it me or does outlook express's filters TOTALLY NOT WORK AT ALL. i added quite a few of the less tasteful words, yet i see them alllllll the time. is it possible that the spammers are now using diff versions of the letters that are visually the same via ascii or something?

Not sure about the other mail clients most of the time if I need to keep something I have a small seperate partition on my harddrive I save it to. When you reformat the system it doesn't effect the partition as long as you don't delete or format it. As for the spam guards my outlook seems to only download about 30% of my spam mail but believe me that comes from alot of tweeking. As for the ones who get threw I just start researching where they came from and if I can't get them I reak all you know what on the site their advertising for. Believe me when I say there's some people you just don't want to spam.

I use Eudora, and I have it saving it's data and pictures to my D: drive, same with any other application's data. I can GHOST back my C: drive if disaster befalls the system, and hardly miss a beat. Of course, I backup the D: drive to another system every night, not to mention a couple times a week to my USB drive.

mozill and netscape both keep dir's on your hard drive called "mail" and thats where all your mail resides, you can save it to where ever you like re-install and your mail is restored. Or Outlook which uses .pst files which saves all your mail, contact ect in one file which is kind of nice.. older version of OE used *.dbx files to store mail if I recall ... I think they changed it in 6 tho and now its a pain in the ****.

Speaking of Yahoo, if any of you guys use Yahoo mail, there's a neat tool to access the free mail with a POP3 mail reader, avoid all the ads and junk. YahooPOPs! is the place to pick it up, very handy utility. Makes those Yahoo email accounts much more useful. :D
