How do I save email to a flashdrive so when I want to view the message offline; all I would need to do is double click the email? I was considering exporting it from the Windows Live Mail program. When I tested this option, it compressed all the emails into one file which is not adventagous. I then considered saving the individual emails from the email folder to the flashdrive, but the file names of the emails are not self explanitory and I will not know what that email contains. So, What is the best way to save mail to a flashdrive?

Install Thunderbird and setup your account in the account settings. Install the ImportExport add-on select all messages and right-click go to "Save selected messages" Select the desired export format. EML in your case. Export to thumbdrive.

In this case, it might be easier to install Thunderbird Portable on the flash drive! :) – iglvzx May 2 '12 at 2:06
