We have a couple of Workspace e-mail accounts at GoDaddy that we are looking to scrap but want to back-up the Inbox contents to an external source, like a flash drive. Is there some easy way to do that or will the individual e-mails need to be copied?

Thanks for any assistance

The easiest way to create a backup of all the data on the account, including email is to go to cPanel>>Files>>Backup Wizard. The only other solution that I would recommend would be to backup the /home/$user/mail/ directory as well as /home/$user/etc/

Alternatively, if they're using a mail client it's really easy to create a backup of just that specific email account through most mail clients.

Thanks. I'm not sure if Workspace is in the cPanel, however.
