runs on Windows

Where would you be if all your email just went away? Whether it's important communications from others, or just notes and reminders you've sent yourself, you'd probably be in a world of hurt if, all of a sudden, they all just disappeared. Whether you use a POP email system and download messages to your local drive, or employ IMAP email or an online service like Gmail, you run the risk of having all these important messages just go away.

MailStore is a tool that can help protect you against the unimaginable. It's compatible with any of these configurations, as well as Exchange Server mailboxes. You can create backups to guard against data loss, but it also gives you the opportunity to save your messages offline. If you've got a bunch of email you don't access regularly, but can't stand to lose, save it with MailStore for access later when you need it. It's smart about how it stores your messages, saving only one copy of each attachment, for example, and it compresses your messages to boot. Now you're able to be much more efficient in how you save these oldies-but-goodies.

MailStore is a Windows application. It requires Windows 2000 or later.

    I use this to backup my Gmail account. Once you get it setup, it works beautifully. Definitely a great program to have.

    It didn’t work on my Yahoo! account, but then again it wasn’t listed and I didn’t really try it, maybe I should have looked further into the program to get it to run. Besides that I use POPpeeper.

    I really wanted to be able to backup my Gmail accounts on my own PC and just stumbled across this and it works great – simple and intuitive and easy to view stored messages.
