Well, maybe this is kind of a dumb one but first of all save all of your email into a PST file (of sorts) or what ever best fits your current email client and back it up so your successor has it available, and then you can try uploading it to gmail I've found its really good on searching thru old emails and getting results. Maybe is just a dumb option but may help. Best of luck.

Submission + - Pogoplug pulling the pig on free accounts

What happens to free accounts?
As of June 15, 2015, if you store data in a free Pogoplug account, you will be locked out until you upgrade to our unlimited service. You are free to remove your content before this date.

Interestingly enough I have Pogoplug device so my data is stored in a HDD at my home, but my account for this is "Pogoplug 5GB Cloud" which is pretty much a free account.

So what will happen to the rest of us that trusted the company enough to pay money for a device? are we getting our accounts closed as well?

How about this:

      Errors due to exceeding these limits may be reported by using the
      reply codes. Some examples of reply codes are:

            452 Too many recipients (see below)

      RFC 821 [30] incorrectly listed the error where an SMTP server
      exhausts its implementation limit on the number of RCPT commands
      ("too many recipients") as having reply code 552. The correct reply
      code for this condition is 452. Clients SHOULD treat a 552 code in
      this case as a temporary, rather than permanent, failure so the logic
      below works.

      When a conforming SMTP server encounters this condition, it has at
      least 100 successful RCPT commands in its recipients buffer. If the
      server is able to accept the message, then at least these 100
      addresses will be removed from the SMTP client's queue. When the
      client attempts retransmission of those addresses which received 452
      responses, at least 100 of these will be able to fit in the SMTP
      server's recipients buffer. Each retransmission attempt which is
      able to deliver anything will be able to dispose of at least 100 of
      these recipients.

      If an SMTP server has an implementation limit on the number of RCPT
      commands and this limit is exhausted, it MUST use a response code of
      452 (but the client SHOULD also be prepared for a 552, as noted
      above). If the server has a configured site-policy limitation on the
      number of RCPT commands, it MAY instead use a 5XX response code.
      This would be most appropriate if the policy limitation was intended
      to apply if the total recipient count for a particular message body
      were enforced even if that message body was sent in multiple mail

Submission + - MS out of Mexican Social Security by 2008 (homeip.net)

The worst of this for Microsoft is that this model is intended to be also used in Secretaría de la Función Pública (SEPUFU) now in charge of Salvador Vega, to be replicated to all of the Mexican federal government."
