My email quota is full, some emails I have deleted but some I am trying to save to a USB drive, or even my desktop. I tried Copy/Paste and dragging, no joy. How can this be done, or can it be done.
@BenBlotter -- what E-mail program are you using? Thunderbird? Eudora? Microsoft Outlook? Windows 10 Mail? Windows Live Mail?
You say that you have "deleted", but did you open your "Deleted Items" folder, and delete everything from that folder?
Microsoft Outlook supports "local folders" -- folders that are stored onto your "C:" disk-drive. So, you can drag-and-drop to move messages from Shaw's mail-server into those local folders. This will reduce your usage of Shaw's "quota".
Yes, I have been clearing my trash as well. I am using Windows 10, as my OS, but have not been using Outlook at all, just Shaw. So when I try to drag, emails, I can only drag them to a Folder I have created within my Inbox.
