How to back up Hotmail messages

Tech TricksPlenty of entrepreneurs still use Hotmail for their day-to-day lives, and it’s important for them to know how to backup emails so they aren’t left in the lurch if a system crash occurs.


First, you need to visit here and download the Windows Live Mail software. This software allows you to handle multiple accounts for your desktop.


Install the program – which should only take a few minutes – and then follow the prompts. You’ll be asked to enter a few different email addresses. Once that happens, the program will start pulling in all of your emails and download messages.


Once that is done, you’ll see that all your messages will actually appear on the program itself. These are now logged on your computer, and you can either copy them or move to them to another computer or hard drive for safe-keeping.
