If I delete an account, is Emclient going to get rid of all the emails? I don’t like that idea! It says it will remove all folders and items. This should not happen. This is pretty dumb of Emclient. I see a posting from 1 year ago too and no reply. I didn’t do it but I was going to. Now I have a problem. I want to get rid of an account but not the emails and I can only have 2 so I can’t put the new email address in without losing all the old emails. And this won’t work because you have my old email address that I want to get rid of.
So I signed up again with a different email address just to tell you this. I guess I’ll have to use a different program for my new email address. I think this is rather silly of Emclient. I understand not allowing any more than 2 email addresses unless we pay, but deleting all the emails when the account is deleted is not a very nice thing to do. Sounds like revenge to me. Sorry to go crook. Will you do anything about it? You haven’t for a year.
Yeah that’s exactly what happens… I did it and all my contacts and e-mails were gone. Why not get this fixed. I’d like to save at least my contact… But it tells me to select the contacts to save I do and it just repeats please select the contacts to be saved!
I hope this will be fixed.
I had to delete an account and I did want to keep all the mails and folders.
So I closed eMClient, downloaded all mails using Thunderbird, so I keep them on the computer, then I deleted the account.
But do not follow my example, I’m not sure it is the right way.
This only applies to IMAP account. Prior to delete an IMAP account, copy everything to local folder first.
