Hi,

I have hastily deleted a mailbox from my webfaction account. Is there any way I can retrieve old emails from this mailbox? are they archived anywhere?

i have a few inboxes that are taking up a lot of storage space on the webfaction servers. How can i export or archive them?

Usually, if you use a local mail client (Outlook/Thunderbird) they have built in backup options for mail accounts.

right! I forgot about that. That will work for those accounts hosted at webfaction. But a couple of sites have moved EMAIL to a new MS Exchange accounts and their older emails are still available via webmail on WEBFACTION. How can that webmail only accounts get archived?

You can still authenticate to those mailboxes using the mailbox name and password you use at webmail with a program like Outlook to download the mail off the server.
