You won't get the save if you access your mail using the hotmail website.
In order to save the mail to your hard drive you will have to install an email client and configure it to work with hotmail. Mail will downloaded into the client and stored on your hard drive. From there you can back up the mail.
There are many email clients to choose from. However, the best one to use with hotmail would be Windows Live Mail
. (if all you want is WLM UNCHECK the other options)
Setting it up for hotmail is easy AND it's preset to leave a copy of messages on the server.
If you do install WLM let me know and I will give you an easy way to back the mail up to a folder.
