Hello Wilfj,

It depends on what email client program you are using. If you are using Windows Live Mail, then the tutorial below can help show you how to export (backup) your messages there.

Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Email Messages

Hope this helps,

MS probably thought you meant you meant what you said.

Several emails - not an entire folder, there might be hundreds or thousands in a folder.

To back up just a few selected emails, you can indeed copy them

Open the email and click File>Save As.
