But if i format the pc and dont save the emails, they also disappear from everywhere? If i go from the browser and login to my account the emails also disappear?

it depends where your emails are stored, if you are using exchange then they'll be on the servers, gmail & outlook on the servers, cheap ass pop3 then you may have set them to download and they'll be just on your PC. It has nothing to do with 'outlook being from the last century'

It's not an outlook setting, it's a setting of your email provider, you need to find out from them if emails are brought down from the server, or just copied from the server. If copied then they'll all be copied again when you connect to their service. You WILL need your email settings, you password etc. You may be able to export these settings, but be sure to have then noted down somewhere.
