"In my opinion, Handy Backup is a perfect email backup solution. A few years ago, I have organized IMAP email backup through its “E-mail” plug-in for the version 7, and since that time, I migrated to Handy Backup 8 and transferred my email backup tasks as well. All tasks are working for now, without any flaw or mishap, and I always have a secured, reliable copy of all my Web mail accounts."
