News you can use ...

Never heard of GArchiver that apparently helps back up your GMail account on your machine. Until I saw this [via]. Bottomline: Don't touch this program!

The post I linked to appears in a blog called Coding Horror. How appropriate!

    Thanks a lot for posting. This is indeed interesting.

    Then again, for those seeking to make local copies of their gmail info, how about:

    1. Using POP, which is provided by gmail.


    2. Using IMAP, and setting your mail client [Thunderbird :)] to save local copies of all emails.


    3. Going crazy g33ky and using fetchmail like here.

    Keep up the good work Abi!
