This dedicated easy-to-use plug-in backs up messages from the popular Gmail service. You can quickly backup and restore an entire account, a folder or as few as one single message by using this plug-in.
The "Gmail" plug-in utilizes both the IMAP mail transferring protocol and the Google Mail API, providing the stable and secured connections.
To set up the task with the Gmail plug-in, please follow the next instruction:
Caveat! To connect Gmail successfully, you must open any browser manually and authorize on the mail login page before clicking "Connect to Gmail" button in Handy Backup!
Note: You can select separate messages or entire folders. To browse folders for the messages you need, use "+" and "-" symbols to expand or hide the folder content.
You can also use the Gmail plug-in for automatic message restoration. To do it, create a restoration task on the Step 1 of the new task wizard. Then on the Step 2, select a backup storage containing your Gmail data and find the file called backup.hbi, which provides the program all data about Gmail backup.
An advice: You can also browse your Gmail backup dataset without complete restoration, to find and read/process any uncompressed, unencrypted message (Handy Backup stores backups in clearly readable native data formats). In addition, you can restore separate messages instead of full recovery.
Due to native email format of all messages backed up by Gmail, you can restore the Gmail backup content not only to its original location, but also to another Gmail account by using the same "Gmail" plug-in, or even to another web server that supports the same "EML" message format as Gmail.
