Using the Project Site Migration Tool 

Project Site owners can use the migration tool to download content from a project site’s Resources tool as a .zip file, and/or download content from the site’s Email Archive tool as a text file (.zip) or as an .MBOX file that can be uploaded to Apple Mail or Thunderbird.  You can also use the tool to copy the site's member list and/or delete project sites.
