downloading an email account
« on: December 20, 2015, 02:54:32 PM »
I've had an account from my credit union (http://mail.pcumail.com) for over twenty years and they recently decided to discontinue the free service.

The credit union email account had the following information as to the account program(s) used:
---------------
Pcumail info

Can anyone help?

What are you trying to download? Roundcube is a webmail program used to access email on a mail server. If you trying to recreate the webmail setup the Roundcube information could be used but if you only want the email then Roundcube really isn't a part of it.

Thank you for your response.

I've over 270M of correspondence I need to save,
enmass, either to another email account or to a flashdrive.

Is there any way I could do this,
other than forwarding each message piecemeal to another email account?

Is it possible to download the pcu account files to a flash drive?

So what your looking to save is the email which isn't actually stored in Roundcube. The best way to save the email would be to use Thunderbird to download all the email and then you can move it from the server to your local computer. In order to do that you would need the IMAP information from the mail provider.
