Amic Email Backup

amic_email_backup.gif Looking for a free email backup tool for Windows? Look no further than Amic Email Backup.
AEB actually goes in and takes the top nine email clients and backs up all of the necessary files so that all of the email is backed up including folders and settings. This makes it so that it’s unnecessary to get other backup software if you just need your email backed up.
What’s great is that AEB allows you to do it in an advanced mode, or a wizard, and it allows you schedule your services for whatever time you would like to do your backup, as well actually restoring the email database on another computer (synchronization). Overall, it’s your email backup utility. For free.

RemoteByMail allows you to send an email to the host computer that you have this little program installed on and have it zip up files and send them back to you, or execute commands or files. No need to open up strange ports anymore or install things on the computers you’re using. It’s basically a “email server side daemon” if you really want to get technical about it.
But in any case, it’s great, it’s free, and it’s for Windows.

Backup to Email

backup2mail.jpg Friedbeeftech has a great little review of of a freeware tool for Windows that backs up any sort of file or folder to email. Backup to Email is a cool tool that allows you to … yes, back files and folders to email.
What’s nice is that you can change the attachment size, and if you attach bigger than what you set, the attachments will be split by the set size (10M default). You can also manage multiple email accounts to run the backup on, and supports SSL authentication and non-SSL. Overally, it’s the whole schbang for backing up to another account.

Gmail IMAP access

gmail.gif If you didn’t know, Gmail now has IMAP access. This is a great thing because previously, POP access was the only thing accessible by Gmail.
The difference between POP and IMAP? Basically, POP allows you to download your email to your client. Say you use Outlook to access your email. If you download it, then you can’t use the Gmail web interface to also have access to the same email. IMAP stores everything on the server, so your client just interacts with the server. Thus, you can always access your account from multiple devices and not worry about having to synchronize email because you’ve downloaded it.
This makes Gmail abundantly more useful since now it doesn’t tie you down with just a single client anymore.
