Developer just emailed me because I reported 5 bugs over the years for his Pro product. He's not going to fix them and is closing down his company. He got $10 for NOTHING. And I will remember him.

This version doesn't work on 10.4.11. Got a empty folder and the application quits after 3 seconds. Fix it!!!

Well, it works now. Does'nt just copy the com.apple.mail.plist document, as before, but everything. All mailboxes are here, with the same number of .emix docs as in library folder. So I assume it's OK.

We have tested your claim about the prefs file backup not working - it is working for us. Please make sure that you resave the configuration since installing the new version.

This application doesn't seem to work with non-english versions of Entourage (X and 2004). It looks like the program doesn't find the path to the E-Mail folder.

DOC RENAUD: Yes, you are missing something. In your ~home/Library/Mail/ folder, there's a huge pile of messy files and folders coming from your mail correspondence. (That is, if you are using Apple's Mail.app.)

So the file you were referencing, is just dealing with your email application settings, not the emails themselves.

Yes, you're right about the mess in this folder. But, is not this app supposed to deal with that, and back up my mails anyway ?
I guess I'm not the only one in this case. And what do you suggest I can do to have this works ?

Doc-Renaud Member IconComment+135

Well, when run, this app copy the 12 kb com.apple.mail.plist document to another place...

Do I miss something ??????

Email Backup is a great application that makes backing up your email much easier.

It supports a range of email applications, and its clear interface allows anyone to backup email with ease. I don't have to hunt through files and folders in order to backup my mail anymore. Scheduling automatic email backups makes my backup process a lot simpler.

I'd highly recommend this app to anyone looking to simplify their backup procedure.

I did not find any "progress indication for Run Now execution" ?
Where is it ?

You did not post a review, only a question. Why did you use the star-ratings?


Well, since I did not succeeded to use "Write reply" with both Safari and FireFox, I post a comment instead to answer your question.
I gave a rating because I find this software interesting and promising, even if I have questions about announced features that I do not find.

The progress indicator is next to the save button. It only appears when Run Now is selected from the Tools menu.

You could also look at the Log window to see the progress of the backup

Would be a LOT more useful if I could specify a date range of mail I want backed up. Still, the price on this is right ... so thanks for an excellent start!
