First of all, Internet Explorer is not an e-mail program. Outlook, G-mail, AOL, these are e-mail servers and may be accessed from Internet Explorer via the “Read Mail” button on the Command Bar. For burning emails from Internet Explorer, right click on the “Favorites” button and check the “Command Bar” line. There is an email icon (the envelope) on the Command Bar. Clicking on this will allow Internet Explorer to open your default email program.
Note: If the email program that IE opens is not the one you regularly use, this means that you have not designated your regular program as the default. It is easy to correct this using your Settings menu.
What is the reason for burning the emails from Internet Explorer onto a CD? Emails are usually small files, so the capacity of a CD will hold a lot of emails, tens of thousands of them. If you are looking for quick-and-easy access, you should probably consider storing them on a flash drive (USB stick, thumb-drive). It would be more convenient and easier to transport in your pocket or purse.
The easiest means of copying your emails to a CD is to transfer them to an immediately readable format by downloading them to host client like Thunderbird or Mail store. Transferred files in a host client are saved as EML files, easily read by any computer with EML capability. If your email server is Gmail, you can simply copy your backup email file to the local disk instead of having to copy individual files. You would then copy the EML message files to a removable disc.
If your email program is MS Office Outlook, you may transfer the email folder to any folder of your choice. Once transferred, you can open the file, right-click to open the drop-down menu, then click on “Send To” and select the appropriate CD-ROM drive from the new drop-down menu. This will give you the options for burning the files to a disk.
After you have selected the files to be copied to the disk, and have selected to do so, you will be shown a command “Files waiting to be burned to a disk.” Insert a blank disk in the drive and click on the balloon with the command. Your files should be burned/copied to the CD-ROM. You may have “open with” options when you insert the disk, be sure to select “Open with Explorer” or you risk failure of the transfer or future accessing the saved files.
It would be very easy to make the process of burning emails from Internet Explorer much more complicated than it is, but there are safeguard prompts in your computer that will warn you if you are making the wrong moves. It is all really quite simple: Access your e-mails through Internet Explorer and transfer them to a folder of your choice. Access this folder and send it to the CD-ROM drive. Use a new disk or one with enough open space to take your folder. Opt to “Send To” the file to the drive. Many computers will copy them with no further commands, but in some of the earlier Windows versions, you may have to enter one more command to “burn to CD.”
