I didn't explain clearly enough. What I mean is for the game to automatically email when it's over.
In other words, if I have an email filter set up, I can just shoot all these automatic emails into one spot which gives me an ongoing, local archive of all my games.
I have something similar set up for my FICS games which are set to email on completion. This is relevant to your post in as much that if this were set up early enough in your RHP career, you wouldn't need to email everything all at once - you'd already have it.
