stalion, ZEROTOLERANCE,

I'm with AOL. I can go to FILE and Click Save As, but should I leave AOL and go elsewhere I may not be able to open them up again under a different ISP. My emails don't open up in Outlook Express.

Click file, save as in my documents

Henmin. Have you tried right clicking file, Save as, and selecting save as Text Document only.You should be able to read it irrespective of whether you are connected to AOL or not.

Hamish,ELECTRON99,

Hamish - thanks, tried but it is stilled saved with AOL icon.

ELECTRON99 - thanks. File - Save As - In save As window choosen Text Files -(*.txt. Opens out in Note Book. Will it be safe here and at all times easy to open and read. I've never used Note Book before.

drag the mouse over all the text you want to save, right click/copy.

open Notepad, then click right mouse button, and paste. then save the file on your hard dive as a notepad file.

doing it this way, you can strip out the useless bits of the e-mail.

I know nothing about the peculiarities of AOL,but you should be safe as Notepad is a very old and primitive form of word processor which is part of windows explorer.You could try a small test by saving an e-mail to floppy, and if you have access to a computer using another ISP,and loading it on that, and seeing if it is readable.

If you upgrade to AOL 9.0 you will have the choice of saving your e-mails to AOL or your computer. Apart from that AOL 9.0 beats all other versions of AOL hands down
