There are plenty of reasons for which you may want to change your email. These could include switching a job, finishing college or you are just sick of the sheer amount of spam you receive and would like to get a fresh start. While making the switch you must keep your emails from your old account backed up in case you need some important information stored in your email. Even if that is not the case, regularly backing up your emails can be useful. If you use Gmail, in a few simple steps, you can download all your emails.
