Gmail has a facility for saving all your data into a zip file, this zip file contains a file in a weird format which when opened with notepad will let you see emails in a somewhat ugly but readable full original text way. It is a good idea to do it every so often for an emergency backup incase something happens to your online account, i would assume other webmail providers offer the same. If on the other hand you use an email program that stores the emails on your harddrive you will need to hunt through ALL your folders until you find where the program stores the files, likely locations include C:\ProgramFiles\(program name)\ or C:\Users\(your name)\AppData . In some cases the appdata folder might be hidden so you will need to enable "show hidden files/folders" under "folder options"-->"view" in windows file browser (windows explorer, i'm trying to say this in a way that does NOT confuse that with internet explorer).
