CloudHQ - Creating EML copies on your computer from webmail emails

Go to and register/log on. Once logged on find the Sync and Backup panel like the one above. You may find it at but the website layout keeps changing. Choose Single User Set Up. Then select Back up one cloud to another cloud and the Sync Wizard panel should be displayed. Select one-way sync and press the square for the email system you have, such as Gmail, Yahoo mail, etc. and follow the prompts to log on to your email system and the further prompts to select the subset of emails to be copied to EML files. You can't directly download the EML files to your computer using CloudHQ - you have to copy them to a cloud storage system first so press the square for the cloud storage system you wish to copy the emails to and follow the log-on prompts and create and select a temporary folder in cloud storage in which the EML files will be created. If in doubt which cloud storage system to use, you can select Google Drive which is free. On the Synchronisation Options panel shown below tick Include email message body and Export messages into EML format and Include email attachments and tap the Start Sync button.

When Cloud HQ has created EML copies of the emails, Cloud HQ will send a confirmatory email to you saying e.g. The initial data transfer between your Gmail and your Google Drive has finished successfully. The sync between these two accounts is running now. Continuously and indefinitely. You can then log on to Cloud HQ and press the Delete Sync Pair button. Then logon to the cloud storage system and download the EML files from the temporary cloud storage folder to your computer.
