Do you backup your email? If so, how and how often?
@joseph Never. I treat it as disposable.
@ataraxia937 That's interesting. I think my archive is very important. It's useful if someone / a company tries to screw you - "You said *this* on March 19, 2011 though..."
@ataraxia937 me too.
@joseph I used to back it up. What I did was setup a Gmail account and have all incomming mail auto-forward to it. Then set my client to automatically BCC the Gmail address in all mail I send.
I then setup rules to sort the sent mail into the right folder and mark everything as read.
Worked well, but I don't bother any more as I never actually needed to use it. Anything I delete is in Trash for 30 days, that's enough.
@joseph Yes, at the office we all use thunderbird, the data folder is backed up once a week to a backup server
