Old comp died. Fortunately I had a very recent backup and also a recent ‘exported files’ backup onto an external drive.
So, new comp has Win 10 Pro x64 on a (new to me) 1 TB solid state drive with a 2 TB SATA drive as well. ‘Dude, it’s a Dell!’
I avoid using Microsoft software as much as I can, and that’s how I found eM Client several years ago.
So I went online (Chrome) and downloaded the latest version of eM Client (v.7.1.38149.0), and installed it.
It installed easily, as usual, and set up the 1 email account I use, which originates at 1&1.com’s server, which I’ve used for years.
I then ‘imported’ my saved email files into the program fromfrom my external hard drive via USB 3.0.
Well… that is to say, that _many_ of my saved folders and emails were imported… but a _lot_ of the folders were empty, and some folders did not get ‘imported’!
So, being busy installing, configuring, and setting up some of my more important programs, I just let eM Client run in the background, as usual.
When I took a moment to look at it, I saw that it was constantly ‘Refreshing’ and said something about ’ uploading ’ down at the lower-left corner.
I let it do its thing, and later I got an email notice from 1&1.com that my mailbox was full!!
Now, I have _never_ left all my emails online, except for some that I save in a folder I named ‘HOLD’, which had several hundred older emails. I also saved those emails on my comp once read.
So after getting that ‘mailbox FULL’ message, I went online and deleted all the _new_ folders that were copies from on my comp, and then all those folders disappeared from ON my computer AS WELL!!!
Now, I still do have my backups and exported files, so it’s just time and stress for a cost…
- How do I stop eM Client from UPloading all my saved emails from my computer to the online server at 1&1.com (1and1.com)?
- How do I get those backups to ALL load into the eM Client program to where they used to be, _in tediously-arranged nestled folders, _the way I used to have them?
I await your usually speedy replies!
In advance, many thanks,
