    To backup your AOL personal file cabinet to your computer :
    • Click the Mail menu
    • Click on Mail Settings
    • Click the Manage Saved Mail dropdown menu
    • Select Backup
    • Click Backup Now
    • Click Save
    Directions for older AOL software and other email clients can be found {AOL removed the help page}

    As there are many email platforms are available for backing up Aol email, you can utilize any of them. Ms Outlook, Thunderbird, Incredimail, Netscape are some of the email clients in which you can synchronize your emails.
