Customer Question
I need to download...

I need to download and save my emails from aol online. They are currently remote.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had this issue with your A.O.L. account?

Well, it wasn't an issue when I could migrate the emails to GMail, but that feature isn't working anymore. GMail allows you to save your emails to an mbox file. I need something similar with aol. Can't find it anywhere.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model/Operating System (OS) of your computer?

WindowsXP

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your computer? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It's a library computer, and I've purchased Incredimail, and that does backup to desktop, or pc, but it uses a ibk file, which is a file that does not become human readable, ever. I've looked everywhere for something to convert it to text, but nothing is available. It's a Perion file.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
