Backup Software / E-mail Backup Software / Gmail Backup Tool
Gmail backup software allows backup Gmail to Google Drive, a local disk, an external USB unit or to any other storage you feel appropriate. Handy Backup accesses Gmail via IMAP, using the dedicated "E-mail" plug-in, and stores emails in a common, readable EML format.
Version 8.1.2, built on 21 February 2020 106 MB
Caution! Google has changed its security policy and now Handy Backup is being certified by Google. The process will take a little time. Because of this, the Gmail plugin may not work correctly, but you can backup Gmail with Email plugin. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Firstly, we are demonstrating how it works. Please follow the next instruction to create an automatic task for Gmail backup.
In this video we show how to copy Gmail with Handy Backup. You will learn how to set up the Gmail plug-in, how to download messages and how to browse these messages as separate EML files.
In this example, we firstly create a Gmail connection and then back up our account data via IMAP. After saving a copy, we will browse and explore our backup folder to see different emails containing in it.
An alternate way to use Gmail backup is the generic E-mail plug-in. To use it, please create a backup task as described above, and add the E-mail plug-in to a backup list on Step 2. After it, please create a new connection with the next parameters*:
* Note: You must allow using less-secure apps with your Gmail account (in the account control page, "Security" → "Less secure apps access", and allow it) to use this technique.
Handy Backup saves unencrypted messages as EML files that are clearly readable for many local email clients. As a result, you can browse, view or even restore separate messages from your Gmail copies (for example, in Gmail FTP backup) manually, without a need for complete account recovery.
You can schedule your Gmail backup tool to strictly defined local time, with possible repeating at an interval from a minute to some months. You can also schedule your task to run when some system event occurs, such as user logon to a system or plugging a task-related USB unit into a PC.
To reduce time and space usage for backup Gmail emails, you can save your account messages, contacts etc. from a server with incremental, differential or mixed backup methods instead of simple full backup. Additionally, you compress and/or encrypt your messages to provide greater data security.
You can set up the program to send notifications and reports to some email that you provide. After setting up notifications, you will receive emails reports about all task activities on a regular basis. You can set up a notification and reporting frequency in program settings.
