Archiving mails on MailEnable webmail


    Every now and then you are required to store Email messages elsewhere, in order to keep your inbox neat and tidy.  This is done through archiving.
    Please keep in mind that archiving messages on the webmail interface, doesn’t remove any messages from the server.  The messages are only moved to the archives folder.
    Should you wish to archive messages locally on you PC, you are required to archive these messages via your mail client, i.e. Outlook, Thunderbird, etc

    This is an easy step for archiving mail on MailEnable Webmail.
