I never tried to save any email except in the Email program itself or to save a copy on the server.

Do you want to save the whole e-mail..including addresses and routing info? Or just the text of it? Kinda like...do you just want whats inside the envelope..or do you want to keep the envelope as well? You could just copy the body of the message into a text file and then save that to the CD

One of the folks more in the know should be able to answer if you tell them what e-mail program you are using.

Oh...and remember you will need to use a RW disk. And it may need to be formatted correctly before use...been so long I can't remember.

Do you use Outlook Express? You'll need to transfer your mail to there first, then it's easy to transfer to a cd. You just click on "export".
I have Verizon dsl with MSN and I don't see any way to transfer email from there.
If you need help setting up Express (if you decide to go this route) let us know.

When you set up Outlook, it'll automatically send copies of all the mail that's stored in your Verizon email. They'll still stay on the Verizon server also.
IOW, first they'll go (and stay) in your Verizon email, then it'll send a copy to Outlook.
As for the software, usually it comes with the recorder, but if not, you can use Windows Media Player. If you already have something installed, a box will come up with options when you try to send the email to a cd.

Your copies of the emails will mean nothing in court. Have your lawyer contact MSN to get their server records of your account.

i want the info, for possibly an other attorny to look at.
or possibly for future reference as to what i had tried to do-before being terminated.
also-how long will 'MSN' records be available?(that is why I wanted to record them)

Actually, they're on Verizon's server. They'll stay on there forever, as long as you're still with Verizon.

Shadeladie, I humbly beg to differ. Newtofta doesn't use Verizon for email. The email server is msn.com. Rest assured that those emails will stay on the MSN server forever.

Newtofta, if you want to have a lawyer look at the emails, go to your MSN site and print them out. In the upper left corner of the screen, click File/Print. This will print the entire web page along with the email -- including the URL.

thanks for the help!
