Just got an email from the developer for the 5 or so bugs I logged over the past 2 years on this product (and gotten no response from him on them).

He's shutting down the company and will be releasing public keys to use this app for free.

Based on the bugs, which I hope would be fixed, it's time for me to find a product that works and is supported. This guy took my money and did NOTHING to earn it. I'll remember him.

Emailed this developer twice about the same problem. Absolutely no response. DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE. No support.

I should have listened to the "poor customer service" comments on this page. How about "no customer service"?

I've run this for 6 months or so. In both 10.6 and 10.8, EMP will sometimes randomly select a name from devices on my network and use that instead of 'hostid' for backup filenames. I've mailed the developer a couple times but been totally ignored. At this point, I think the backups are redundant with Time Machine anyway. I can open up mail, go back to a date in TM, and the emails sent and received that day are all there. I hope this developer has a day-job because this piece of junk wasn't worth the $10 I paid for it.

February 11, 2012 - 2.6.1 update released to fix apps ability to restart after a backup. Back to a 5 star app. This app also backs up your address book and backup / restoring Address Book is an added bonus.

Unfortunately, I'm still having the same issues even with this latest update - a full system reboot is needed after a backup in order for Mail to be able to log into my accounts. Uninstalled again. Permanently.

@Mglamb: I'm having the same problem as you are when the program preferences are set to restart Apple Mail after a scheduled backup. (I've found that it will work fine if you remove the auto configuration and run it manually.) I did notice that during a scheduled backup, Apple Mail would reopen before Email Backup Pro was finished, precisely what the popup window warns you not to do. By unchecking the "Launch email client after backup" option, I can open Apple Mail after the backup without any problems. Yes, it's a "work-around" that I don't particularly like, but at least I can get an automatic backup. I will email the developer this info, maybe it will give him a clue where to look for a fix.

Six months after Lion and it's still broken. Don't waste you time and $$ on this app - it does not work with Lion. Apple Mail locks up after this app is run and it's a pain to get Apple Mail back up and running. Anyone with suggestions for a good back up solution for Apple Mail?

Poor customer service from the developer. I first registered this product in August of 2007 and it has worked reliably until I upgraded my Macbook Pro to Lion. The issue I am now having is that the logins to my various mail servers (IMAP and SMTP) fail consistently after a backup has been run. Entering the passwords in the dialog boxes doesn't work. The only solution is a full system reboot, with the problem recurring at the next backup. A complete uninstall and reinstall has had no effect.

A detailed help request with console dump was emailed to support on July 30th and remains unanswered.

At this point, the application has been uninstalled and will remain so until the issue is resolved.

While it has been stated before that Time Machine also backs up Mail it is not totally intuitive on how to do it or more explicitly, how to retrieve mail once it's back up. Here's how:
-Open Mail
- Launch Time Machine
- Either do a search using the search field or browse through the desired box till the message is found.
- Choose the messages you wish to retrieve
- Press restore
the desired messages are retrieved into your current mailbox.

So if you're using Time Machine and find a reliable as I do, you already own an excellent way of backing up and retreating old mail messages.

So unless this program offers you a specific feature that you really want to spend $10 for, you may have something else more useful to spend your $10 on.

It would be nice if the developer could explicitly state in this MacUpdate.com post which email clients it works with (aside from those cryptically mentioned in the What's New > Version 2.5.1 section). Naturally, I assume it works with Apple's Mail, but what about Entourage, Thunderbird or the newly released Outlook from Office 2011?
