[Q] POP 3 reconfiguration - HELP needed


I am having problems with the ISP I use for my webmail so I have decided to run my family mail domain on my local mailserver on my Mac Mini as the family mail system.

I can sort out this easily enough and am ready to switch at any moment but...

I have an HTC One Mini (UK Vodafone stock roms). It is running:

Android 4.3
HTC Sense 5.5
Software number
HTC SDK API level 5.65

Kernel Version 3.4.10-g5208099

Build Number CL282558 Release-keys
Browser version webkit/534.30

I have downloaded all my webmail from the ISP via POP3 into my One Mini using the standard mail app (it is no longer on the isp mail server). When I attempt to change the inbound and outbound mail settings on my HTC One Mini I get a message stating:

Warning Changing the Server will delete the current account

The user mail address will be the same but I would be pointing to a new server with new logon credentials.

I need to preserve my mail messages (sender addresses) as I change the in/out pop servers so that when i change the POP3 account details I can maintain my mail data.

Can anyone explain what I need to do to enable the change safely. I cannot afford to lose these mails nor can I stay with the ISP forever?

Does someone have an export tool?

I can find nothing on the web on this subject so I am turning to this community because there are some wizards out there...

I need to change the inbound, outbound, user name and pw details for the account settings. Is there some way I can poke these values into the internals of the application? Can anyone offer me a script to help to do this? Would this bypass the account content deletion?

All help appreciated,
Many thanks
