Handling of Local Folders on Account Deletion

I’m going to be deleting an gmail account from EMClient. I have some saved messages in Local Folders that I want to retain. My question is will the emails from the deleted gmail account be deleted from the Local Folders?

As far as I know, any email messages in the Local folders at the bottom left normally (are not deleted) when you remove your account as a stored locally.

However before removing your account to be on the safe side, backup eM Client via “Menu / Backup” so you can restore if needed.
