You cannot keep VM email if you have no services with them. It is normally terminated within 3 months.

If you mean archive your collection of emails, rather than keep the email account going (which you cannot do), then this past topic may help

The topic is old but the software is still available

Thanks goslow I will look in to that!

It does matter how you access your emails as to how you can archive them.

If you use Outlook or Office 365 then its simple. Highlight the emails you want to save right click and on the dropdown menu choose "Move" and then "Copy to Folder" choose the inbox or your new email address as the destination and just copy them over. It can take a while if you have a lot of emails.

If you don't have an email management system then the safest way of doing it is to download them onto a flash drive and then up load them onto your email account. If your not comfortable doing that yourself then find a local IT support company and they will do it for you, there will be a cost but shouldn't me much.
