Many people have switched to web mail for the ease of access and Gmail is one of the best, but unlike desktop software like Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail all your messages are now stored on Googles servers and not on your local computer. What happens if Google has a problem or deletes your account. (don’t laugh its happened) Here’a a program I found that will backup all your mail and attachments to your local computer and the backups are able to be opened in many desktop programs. The App is called Gmail Backup you can download it here.

After installing the program enter your Login info and password then choose where you want the backup stored then in the date field choose the date of your oldest email then click Backup, its that easy.

As you can see above you can also restore a backup if need be. Enjoy.
