What Is eM Client Backup?
About eM Client
The eM Client is a simple to use but very powerful local email message client. It allows creating, receiving, sorting, searching and managing emails from different accounts. Besides its main function, it is also an organizer and planner, allowing almost all the things that allowed in MS Outlook, and more.
eM Client Backup Tool
To use eM Client backup, a dedicated program must have capability to copy files from one location to another (i.e., you can use a file manager for eM Client manual backup). Still, an automated, dedicated eM Client backup and restore solution, like Handy Backup, can save much time and give convenience.
The Basics for eM Client Backup and Restore
Hot Access to eM Client Backup Account
Handy Backup allows backup eM client without stopping it, i.e. performing "hot" backup, utilizing the VSS (Volume Shadow copying Service) of Windows to do it. As a result, you have no need to shut down and reload your messenger when performing eM client database backup.
Scheduling Automated Actions
With Handy Backup, you can backup eM client data by a scheduled period, with an exact time to start and an interval from minutes to months. You can also schedule a backup task to run by some system event occurred, such as user logon/logoff or insertion of a USB disk linked to this particular task into a PC.

eM Client IMAP Backup
When the eM client operates via IMAP, it downloads almost no information locally. Thus, the best way to backup eM client data when using IMAP is to connect with an email server directly using the “Email” plug-in in the “E-mail” data group on the Step 2. Please read more about email backup details.
The eM Client for Linux
eM client is not a cross-platform solution. It works only under Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista, as well as under modern server editions of Windows. Under Linux, you can use the eM client only with Wine. Therefore, to perform eM client backup Linux provides its own folders where eM stores its emails.
