I bought a new laptop and the guys transferring my data have managed to lose my emails. Looks like the pst file was corrupted during the transfer. I still have my emails on my iphone. Any ideas on how to get them onto my PC again? I’ve tried using iTunes but I don’t get any “mail” options

TIA

Mail isn't stored in iTunes... Your Apple mail will be in the Mail tab in iCloud.

icloud.com/login with your Apple account details/Mail.

Apple mail 'tho... If you're using another mail service, not so much.

Is Apple mail the standard iphone mail? I have a telkomsa.com email address that comes to my phone...

No 'standard' mail, you add whichever accounts you want to use in the iPhone Mail app. Apple mail would be an icloud.com/me.com mail account, and Telkom would be a telkom.net/telkomsa.com mail account.

And that's what we were looking for.

Telkom is the mail server.

Do you know your Telkom account and login details?

I've been on a Mac and iPhone, and Outlook free, for more than a decade now, so I'm flying blind here, but, I'm assuming Telkom mail is IMAP, and mail should pull through to your new machine when you create a new mail account in Outlook using those Telkom details.

My Telkom is pop3 /smtp ... which I take it means it is saved on the device rather than on the cloud?
I really appreciate you taking the time to help!

Found this. Not sure if it works and it's not perfect, but I'd try it anyway.
