The Outlook web app is a good tool for using the Outlook email service, the other being the Outlook PC app, which makes it easy to access and manage emails. Unlike Gmail, the Outlook web app gives you tons of ways to categorize your data, whether through folders, categories, search folders, and more.
Sometimes, however, you may want to save your emails from Outlook Web to your PC. Here’s how you can do it.
How to Save Emails from Outlook Web
Saving your Outlook webmails is a fairly simple text process. All you need for a good desktop email client, log into your Outlook account through it, and you’ll be good to go. So let’s get started.
Get a desktop email client
In our case, we will be using the Thunderbird desktop email client. Why? It’s free; open-source; and trusted around the world. You will first need to head to the Thunderbird official websiteand download the app from there.
When you’re done, open the app and sign in with your Outlook email account. When you do this, you will then be prompted to choose a configuration for your emails: IMAP, POP3 or Exchange/Office365.
Select IMAP and finalize the configuration.
Now your Outlook emails will be synced in your Thunderbird client. All you have to do is backup the mails now. If there are specific emails you want to save, select the emails individually, right click above, then select Save as…
Your emails will be saved instantly.
Alternatively, if you want to save all emails, navigate to a specific section, for example, inbox, tap CTRL+A to select all emails, and then select Save as…
Now choose the location on your PC where you want to save your Outlook webmail and select OKAY. All your emails will be downloaded in minutes or seconds.
