I’m sure sometimes you are in need of backing up your electronic mailing transactions, especially, if you are using Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP)/Post Office Protocol (POP3) electronic mailing program. Now, there’s an easy way to do backing up of your e-mail account out of the cloud. Your standard e-mail account such as if you’re using Mozilla Thunderbird and you want some solutions to appear and not the mail program like traditional ones; if you just want backup, you can connect through Google mail’s (Gmail) Backup or Keeper.

If you want to use a straightforward interface and an application that can standalone, Gmail Backup is the best. You may choose a backup directory and proceed after entering your username and password. You can see what the program is doing and how it works through the list of messages downloaded by scrolling it. For easier access of the stored data in other programs it has to be in e m l format all the time. For a friendly advice, the usual benefit of this program is to bring down attached files which can also function on notebooks, but you have to be aware that the space for storage is very restricted to only a small capacity.

For a heads up, Keeper has more to offer in comparison with Backup which has limited features like label filtering, backup scheduling, profile management, have no program for documentation offline, Help button for opening documentation on your browser, and the documentation is presented in substandard language. Comparing both Backup and Keeper, the latter uses 9M of Random Access Memory (RAM) than the former which uses two times more. There are several factors engaged in the usage of system resource as a caution.

But the good news is, Backup is now being developed beginning the last month of the 3rd quarter of 2010 to a better e-mail backup program and will hopefully launch new features and enhancements in the years to come. It is recommendable to use Keeper for the reason that it has better features and options not available from Backup. On the contrary, if you like freedom from charges or bills, you may count on Backup’s basic functions which can also be of good use for starters.

If you like to have a simple and basic backup features for your electronic mailing purposes, you may use Gmail Backup; but it you like to use more features and better options, you have to pay $30 for Gmail Keeper. It will be up to you to decide which one is going to fit your lifestyle.
