    Can I download all of my Web Hotmail e-mails?


    Hello everyone,

    I am at an organization that I will leave soon. I would like to download all of the emails on my account from there, for personal archival.

    1. Is this at all possible?
    2. If your answer to 1. is "Yes", please share with me steps on how to do this!

    The email address of mine at that organization is a hotmail/outlook address with a custom domain. I have attempted to sign in to my account on Thunderbird and also the Outlook desktop app but have not been able to get either to work.

    A work computer and a work email account? You'd better ask your employer if it's okay otherwise you are stealing.

    Forward them to another account.

    FYI:

    You can request a copy of your mailbox at any time from the Settings menu.
    ...

    Note: This process might take up to 48 hours. After a copy of your mailbox is ready, you'll receive an email with a link to download the contents of your mailbox. This feature is not available for Microsoft 365 accounts using Outlook on the web.

    Export mailbox ... in Outlook.com

    I said organization. Not necessarily work. And forwarding them all to another account will take too long, who has time for that??

    I am going to try everyone else's replies.

    For everyone: Isn't it possible to sign in to an organisational Office 365 account in the Outlook desktop app?

    I can do that. I'm not sure why you can't. See:
