I have a lineone.com email account accessed via web and need to back up all folders before losing access in early December. eg to a memory stick. How do I do this please?

I have two options for you:
Backup via Email client
What I do is set up an email client like Thunderbird on my notebook (that also has a connected backup hard drive) as an IMAP account to the TalkTalk mailbox. Thunderbird will synchronise the TalkTalk mailbox folders to the Thunderbird email client. I can then create local folders from Thunderbird and copy emails to those local folders including folders on the connected hard drive. Those emails will be viewable in Thunderbird on your device.
Saving emails from TalkTalk Mail webmail
If you wish to backup mail messages directly from TalkTalk Mail as eml files that can be viewable in other email clients then proceed as follows:
Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail
Enter your email address and password, select Sign in.
NB Select all will by default select just the first 50 mail messages in the folder. Use the List view scroll bars to enable the selection of more messages.
