I am not online at home so I come to my mums to check my e-mail. Is it possible to transfer the whole of my e-mails to disk so I can take the disk home and read them offline? If so how/ I`m a bit of a newbie. Thanks

The easiest way to do it to:

1. create a folder on your root drive. Example C:\caramacgirl\
2. open your email (if browser based) to view it
3. click on File, then select Save Page As
4. browse to the folder you created, then save it to there.
5. burn the folder to disc.

You're all done.

[Added Info] since your files will probably be very small, you'll want to use either 1.44M floppy discs or re-writable discs (cd's / dvd's). That way you can reuse them over and over again. Other than that, you'll be wasting discs.

You can save the emails as word or text documents.
