When you transfer a domain, it’s important to note that emails and contacts won’t be transferred with it. Because of this, we recommend saving all of your important emails and contacts on your computer beforehand.
Using an external email program
You can save your emails with the help of an external email program on your computer. These are the general steps to follow, though they can vary depending on the email program:
- Download and install your preferred email program on your computer
- Create an account in the email program using the login details for the account whose emails you want to save
- To set up this account, you’ll also need the server details
- In the account settings, make sure that the setting for saving emails on the computer is activated. This feature could be called something like ‘Save emails from this account on this computer’
If you do not have an external hard disk, we can recommend programs such as Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook that may help you with creating a backup of your emails.
