I'm not familiar with that email server,but if it's anything other than Outlook or Outlook express,eg Yahoo,hotmail it will still be there,just remember your name/password.
If it's 98se,you have a wise Momma.

lol bluto that didnt help. A program like that downloads the email from the server onto the computer, taking it off the server, so it will be non exsistent. Sorry mate..im looking for a way to do that for outlook too. Hope someone else can help

A "program like that downloads " I didn't suggest a program.
A program like "what" did you describe.
If you have a yahoo account and redo your computer they will still be there waiting for your "log in".Remember "log in". Same with icq.
You have a lifetime account there.If you remember how to log in.
I also have a way for Outlook, Need PM.

Ok guys, I feel rather good about myself right now, I discovered how to do it on my own in the program files there are files for each mailbox. if I save these, i can paste them back into the program files and keep the emails Don't know about outlook though, i don't use it. wish you luck on that camers.
