Default Emails

My ISP is shortly going to stop hosting emails. gibraltar.gi
My account is IMAP.
After the ISP ceases to host will there still be a copy of my emails on my PC that I can access into the future?

You would be better archiving them to PDF and burning them to a disk for longevity.

There is an Export/Import add-on available for Thunderbird, but I have never used it, so have no idea if it would do what you need.

Thunderbird allows you to create a new local (on-disk) subfolder. Having set that up you could create subfolders below that to match your existing structure, and copy mails over from the IMAP source to the new local target.

It's not a very elegant solution, I suppose it depends on the number of folders in your IMAP account.

What I am finding is there is conflicting information.as to where the emails are stored, POP is suposed to download to the PC whilst IMAP is suposed to leave them on the server which of couse I will shortly have no access to.
However if I unplug my PC from the internet I can still access my emails on my PC?
I have three machines all running Thunderbird which if I retain te emails on them is sufficient backup for my needs.

Yes, POP3 downloads the messages whereas IMAP holds them 'up there'. As far as still accessing the emails when disconnected from the internet, there is a cache involved as far as IMAP is concerned. Stay disconnected and reboot the PC, likely those emails will have 'gone' from view.

If you opt for the Thunderbird 'local folder' route, then the messages will only be visible on the PC that you use to do the deed, unless the 'local folder' is on some kind of shared (by your three machines) storage, such as NAS or even clunkier, an external USB disk.

Late edit: Just read the Important Notice from Sapphire, seems to have some helpful stuff...

Luckily you are using thunderbird for your mail.

There is a simple example on youtube.


Best just to do this on one machine.

Later you can move them back to your (new) IMAP service if you like and sync across your 3 machines automatically via the new e-mail service.

I know it well. A fabulous work of art by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Wouldn't you think he would have considered leaping off of it with shame, having a name like that!
It's sometimes referred to as Lover's Leap, being an infamous structure in Bristol for suicides.

When I walked back from the Leigh Woods side where a youngish man was sat over the edge with a bottle of booze and a woman who appeared to be trying to reason with him.
A group of police were having a good laugh in a van at the Clifton end and appeared anoyed when I informed them of the situation.

I believe it was cider but in a largish plastic bottle.

Just for comparison I was paying £2.50 a pint in Gib for drinkable cider whilst in Bristol I was charged £8.50 for a pint and a half of local rubbish that had no taste and I would guess had been watered down
