Do a backup of your E-mails! - great application!

Hi,

This time I would like to tell you about, maybe not well known, but excellent software which can provide you easy and reliable your E-mails backup strategy.
I'm talking about MailStore Home - it's free, but in the past it was a paid software.
I'm using MailStore Home for almost year and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a backup of the emails on own computer.

This is how the main menu looks like:


MailStore Home Archives Email From:
Microsoft Outlook 2000, XP, 2003 and 2007
Microsoft Outlook Express and Windows Mail
Microsoft Exchange Server Mailboxes
Hosted Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes
Mozilla Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
POP3 and IMAP (including webmail services such as Gmail and Yahoo)
.eml and other files


Download site:
Free email archiving and backup software - MailStore Home


HTH,

Hi there
For outlook why not just use pfbkup.exe or even the archive function.

For Outlook express just change the data area where the folders are stored and just save these with Windows express.

For other email clients this might be OK but I'm now trying to "minimize" the number of 3rd party apps I have on machines. Maintenance and serial numbers etc etc gets ever more complex so I'm "Going back to the roots".

A 3rd party app for me now has to do ALL of the following

1) Is it SIGNIFICANTLY better than what is available in the standard system.

2) Is it cost effective.

3) Is the manufacturer / developer still going to be around a few years later or are you going to get stuck with some obsolete app a few years down the road.

Paid apps that I use that MS has no better or equal equivalent for (to ??) are things like Photoshop CS4, Acronis True Image (MS backup is getting better but still doesn't have anything like the functionality yet), some audio editing software, DVD authoring, Winamp,MS Office. (Open Office does a passable job but still doesn't compare with "the real thing" especially as MS office - even the Enterprise version can be sourced HEAVILY discounted -- either as a student, via MS Use at Home programs --get your employer to sign up) or technet /msdn.

Free 3rd party apps - MySQL, WAMP server, µTorrent

Jury's still out - Firefox vs IE8.

(Corporate apps like SAP with its front end GUI, Oracle, Eclipse IDE etc don't count of course since you HAVE to use these if you are working at a site which has these.)

Cheers

If I have to compare archiving system in Windows Live Mail (I'm using it) to MailStorage Home - I think it is better in MailStorage Home.

Let me explain.
Windows Live Mail archive my every single email - mail by mail and it looks like this im my WLM folder vs MailStorage Home which compact all mails into .dat files (in attach)


Also MailStorage Home offers easily via GUI searching in your emails. It's great solution for me.

Note first screen with eml files is from A account, second screen with dat files is from B account which store summary ~7,400 mails compacted into 366 dat files.

Does it store your emails online or just backs them up locally?

Of course locally! You can backup your emails to HDD or USB drive or CD/DVD.

Can the mail that is backuped be restored easily back to Live mail or do they remain as data files?

Hi,

there is an option Export E-mail (and one of the option to choose is "Windows Mail") but I haven't tested it so far, so I can't tell you if it works.
