you a CD burning program, like brasero or K3B and copy your Mail folder to a
CD & burn it. Might be a good idea to back up ALL your files if they fit on a
CD.. /home/USER, includine "." files.. this will get all the good config
files like .gconfg, .bashrc...

your mail will probably be under a folder like:
/home/USER/Maildir or /home/USER/Mail....

Okay, but how do I get the e-mail off the server?
