Many emails have a short life span. After they have served the purpose well (reading), they are pushed down in the Inbox automatically. This clutters up your Inbox, calling for a better archiving solution. Here’s where many third party tools role like MailStore Home 8 may be able to help you.
MailStore Home 8 for Windows is a better archiving solution for your emails scattered around the wide world of web. The tool acts as a central repository of all your emails from all your email accounts and makes them searchable under a single window.
Using MailStore Home 8
Using MailStore Home is dead simple. Here’s how to go about it.
For archiving your particular webmail account, you have to enter the email address for that account and hit the ‘Start’ button.
Next, enter the password for the webmail account. MailStore takes some time to detect settings.
Once done, a profile name created under ‘Saved Profiles’ list becomes visible. Simply double-click the profile to start archiving. By default, MailStore skips archiving ‘Trash’, ‘Spam’ and other junk folders.
The program later starts scanning folders and creating archives for single or multiple email accounts of yours. The archival process takes some time, depending on the quantity of email. A ‘Progress View’ window on your computer screen, indicates the progress of the items processed. Wait until the process gets completed.
Once done with the archiving job, emails are organized neatly into different folders as shown in the screenshot below. Just click on any folder to find the list of related emails contained in it. You can open them with a click of your mouse, within the email program.
MailStore includes a good search feature. The feature allows you to search for any deeply buried mail within the program. It is also capable of searching all types of attachments. Besides, it has advanced features like reusing saved search queries too.
Additionally, if you want, you can define different search parameters here to speed up the searching process.
Export is the main highlight of the MailStore application. Using this feature you can export an entire folder or individual emails from the archive to installed email clients or a file directory. Just right-click a folder or individual email and select the ‘Export to’ option.
If you are exporting to a file directory, the files will be transferred as EML files. EML files can be read by many applications.
Simply choose a target folder for exporting the files or create a new one and assign it with a suitable name.
The exporting process begins shortly thereafter.
