saving e-mails from my msn.com e-mail account to my hard drive.

How can I transfer saved e-mails from my msn.com e-mail account to my hard drive? I've been getting MSN Premeire as part of my Verizon DSL for over 10 years. That is apparently changing and will no longer be offered. MSN is of course offering me the chance to pay for the service myself but I think this is the time to go with a new ISP. Many of those e-mails are important as back-up to conversations about legal and business matters that I probably don't need, but you can guarentee I will need them one day after they are no longer available. I know I could go in and save them individually, but there are literally thousands of them. It has been over 10 years. Isn't there a way I could do a bulk save? Thanks.

Just copy and paste into Wordpad, or similar.

It should be possible to back up your e-mails to an external hard drive/flash drive

Have you tried.....

Open MSN Explorer.

Click "Settings," then click "Email Settings."

Click "Import and Export" then click "Export." Name the file something meaningful, then click "Save." Save the backup file to a location on your hard drive.
