    Saving Web Mail to Hard Disk


    I use a gmail POP account to get my emails from my ip.
    I want to be able to save an email to my local hard drive as txt or htm
    When I tell EI 11 to Save as.. .txt, the file is unreadable.
    When I save it as an htm and open it I'm sent to the gmail login but
    gmail seem to hang for a long time at login. I don't get to the inbox at all and need to close IE.

    Any ideas how to save web mail to my hard drive???

    I'm getting away from the email clients.
    I was hopping to find some way of accomplishing this without it.

    I found a decent way.
    If I open the email and press ctl-p the print dialog comes up.
    I then can select Microsoft XPS Document Writer, Windows saves the mail
    as an OXPS to my Documents folder.
    This work oks in Internet Explorer in metro.
