Your MyLDSMail account is deactivated after you return from your mission. Many returned missionaries save those emails by transferring them to a personal email account, and if you have stored your mission emails this way, you can make a Preserve a Mission book. If you stored your emails in another format, such as a Word document or another file on your computer, contact us directly for assistance. We can still make a book, but there may be additional steps involved. For more information on creating books from saved emails, send us a message at [email protected]
If your MyLDSMail account has been deactivated and you did not transfer your emails to another account, you may be able to retrieve some of the emails that you sent to friends or relatives by contacting them directly. Your book will contain only the emails sent to and from those people.
