Maza Digital has re-released its Email Backup app as a shareware app called Email Backup Pro.
It offers a simple schedule for the complete backup of messages and settings in Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Eudora and MS Entourage X and 2004. The shareware version adds a restore option and comes with an optional add-on to manage backups on external harddrives.
The interface clearly presents options for the location and timing of the backups and the number of backup to save:
If you want to save your backups to an external drive that is not always connected, an additional freeware app Email Backup On Mount is provided.
It watches for the mounting on the remote drive and prompts you to do a backup when it is connected. It also offers menubar access to Email Backup Pro’s main features.
The backups are compressed as zip files with the date of the backup and the extension .ebp, which helps with subsequent identification and saves space.
Restoring the backup is as easy as selecting “Restore” from the app’s Tools menu.
Email Backup Pro costs USD 9.95 and a demo version (with scheduling disabled) is available from the developer’s web site .
Documentation is not included in the download, but is available separately.
