Access to FM email via FastMail IMAP server requires no bridge software. You can save and restore your FastMail account directly, saving both time and local storage space from unnecessary job of creating a transitive copy from downloaded messages. You can even save FastMail email data to another server!
Handy Backup allows you scheduling IMAP FastMail backup tasks to an exact time and repeat these tasks at a period from a minute to several months. It also allows built-in methods of FastMail encryption, partial (incremental, differential and mixed) backup, storing many versions of the same backup, etc.
For FastMail IMAP backup, the Handy Backup utility allows many storages. You can backup FastMail to Google Drive, save the message database on a local disk, use an FTP, or take another option to store FastMail email content. You can also read, modify and copy unencrypted backups in EML format freely.
In addition to crucial features useful for FastMail IMAP access, Handy Backup provides some other possibilities and tools for smooth, quick and reliable backup, including:

Here is a brief instruction about creating a Fastmail backup task using a particular server configuration for your account.
Create a restoration task on the Step 1, instead of a backup task. Then select a file backup.hbi from your backup location. This file contains all the data about your backup, including the default place for restoring your FastMail IMAP backup data.
Here we are using Yahoo! just as an example!
In latter case, you will see a dialog for selecting a new data location. Note that you must have a previously created connection. Choose a new place, create a folder for restored data if you need it, and click OK to continue.
Note: Excepting the migration for freshly created accounts, we are recommending always moving your Fastmail backup data to another folder than actual messages existed in the destination account. This may be crucial for preserving data from an accidental loss.
All the listed features turn Handy Backup into a strong, versatile tool for FastMail IMAP backup. Try this program by yourself, downloading a 30-days free trial version with a full set of functions just now!
