    Transferring/backing up emails from 1and1

    Hi guys,

    I have a client who wants to transfer his domain/hosting to me. He's currently with 1and1 and using webmail to access his emails. He'll obviously want to backup his emails before transferring over. Is there an easy way for him to do this from 1and1's webmail? ie some sort of "export emails" button? My only idea is that he uses Outlook (he doesnt have Outlook installed, so maybe an alternative?) and download all emails there. Any idas?
    Thanks

    I can't say definitively but I wouldn't expect so. They should have IMAP access though so you should be able to use something like Larch - https://github.com/rgrove/larch to transfer it.
