Note: To operate with Excite backup content with utmost efficiency, your chosen local client must support the EML message format. This will allow you to recover Excite mails to another mail server by sending the folders with EML messages to another account by using the IMAP protocol!

ProtonMail Backup

This is another case that can cause some problems.
