No, Telstra isn't your client, they are your isp. The client is the program you can use on your pc to access your emails - Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, LiveMail etc.

However, if, as I suspect, you don't actually use a client, but instead access your email via the BigPond website then I think you may be struggling to save all of your emails. AFAIK Bigpond deletes all emails over 180 days old unless you have done what you have, to put them into separate folders. I'm pretty certain that BigPond don't have an email export system like Hotmail .

The only other way I can think of to download the current emails is to set up an email client on your pc using standard POP settings, then as soon as you connect your current emails will download to your pc, however you won't be able to get the emails in your folders this way. As an experiment, once you have your client set up, and the current emails downloaded you could try moving a couple of emails from the folders back into the inbox and see if your system download them before they are deleted.

Edit: The links johnw got posted before I posted back explain how to set up your email clients, but the problems over your existing folders will still remain, so try the method I mention in the last paragraph.

The Email client is important (as mentioned) as each may have different features and ways of doing things. There may be an Archive feature where you can designate the location to save the archive folder.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
