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}
