Good Questions: Best Way to Save Emails?

Pin it button big

While lamenting the state of our own email inbox a few days ago unplggd reader witchbaby came up with a good question.

Is there a way to save a copy of all those emails to a folder on your desktop? I've wondered this for my Gmail account. I was able to do it to my dad's aol email account since he saves his bill statements.

There are a few different ways to do this, and we are curious to see what others are doing, but what we have done in the past is printed the email as a PDF and saved it to a file for archiving. Instead of picking an actual printer through file>print, we select PDF and a location to save the file to. Nice and easy.

Anyone else have suggestions for tackling this issue?
