Keeping emails after cancellation

I'm leaving Virgin Media soon and understand that after 90 days my email address will be cancelled. This means that I will no longer be able to send or receive emails using this address and also will not be able to read existing emails online. But presumably the emails which have already been downloaded to my machine will not be affected and I will be able to access them in the regular way???

Depending on how your email client is connected to the VM mailbox, and what email client you are using, the email messages on your device may be stored in different ways and locations on the device.

If you simply want to archive the messages for storage, have a look at this past topic

https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Forum-Archive/Backing-up-your-Emails-One-of-many-solutions/m-p/...

Whichever method you decide to use, I would suggest undertaking any backup task quickly as topics on here quite often seem to state the mailbox can become inaccessible faster than the 90 days quoted.
