    How to backup exchange server emails that are on my phone to my computer? My Galaxy S2 has all my personal emails that were sent to my corporate email. I have since left the company and cannot connect to the corporate server but the emails are still on my phone. I want to keep those emails before I delete them off of my phone. Is there a way for me to backup the emails that are on my android device. I can back them up to my personal computer, cloud or SD card that is in my phone.

    I also have a new corporate email (exchange) account. Could I just change the server settings of my old email account that is in my phone to the new exchange server settings? Will that work or will I lose the emails?

    The ones you would like to keep I would just forward to another email account. Or you can take screenshots of them too.

    Unable to forward the e-mails, because the mail account is terminated and I am unable to use another "from" e-mail id. Is there any other way? Taking screenshots is of very limited use, especially when there are long documents also as attachments.

    Is is possible to print the email? Then you can use a scanner and save that file?

    Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this. Here is the method I found...

    Open an email on your phone and find where you can "save email as file". It is usually in the upper right dropdown. After saving, go to your phone's storage and find the Saved Email folder. The email will be saved as an *.eml file. Since the file is relatively small, you can do this for multiple emails. (It is a little time consuming to open emails and save as files but once you get the hang of it you can go pretty fast.) All you are doing is opening emails and saving them to that Saved Email folder.

    Next, using an email account, email the *.eml file(s) to the email address you want to place the emails in. Remember you can attach multiple files in one email since they are small files. Now open the email account on your computer with the attachments and select an *.eml file. When you open the attachment it will appear as an open email. Move the open email to the folder you want it to appear in.

    The email will now be in that folder and appear just as it was on your phone. Unfortunately you now have to spend time opening each *.eml file as an email and moving it to the desired folder. At least now the emails will be saved where you want them in the order (date and time) as they appeared on your phone.
