E-Mail Backup image

As modern life depends so much on electronic communication and particularly e-mail messaging, creating regular e-mail backups is vital to minimize the possible impact of loss of correspondence and valuable contacts.

However, when it comes to email backup software, it appears that there are so many different e-mail clients that there can be no common technology that could be implemented in a single utility.

Handy Backup’s wide range of features meets needs of most users working under Windows OS. There are a number of features designed for backing up e-mail messages, contacts and accounts:

  • Backup Email Clients. With Handy Backup you can safeguard data and settings of most popular e-mail management applications used today: by default, the program lets you back up MS Outlook, backup Outlook Express, or create Windows Mail backups.

    Also, it can be supplemented with backup plug-ins that can be downloaded and exploited in the program free of charge, e.g. Thunderbird backup.
  • Backup Emails from POP3 Server. The program lets you retrieve e-mail messages directly from the mail server. The Webmail Backup feature has certain limitations (as POP3 protocol provides access to incoming messages only).

    Nevertheless, it can be very useful if you don’t have an e-mail client and manage your mail through web interface.
  • MS Exchange Server Backup. Exchange Server is an enterprise level software that manages messaging and collaboration in companies using Microsoft technologies.

    MS Exchange Server backup is one of the most advanced features of Handy Backup intended for use by IT professionals and system administrators.
