If we often send letters by email, would be a lot of our emails on the internet that requires an internet connection to open it, if indeed the condition where we do not have internet access constraints we may not have thought to make a backup email, but if we may not be every day can access the Internet or an Internet network is damaged or when the error for some reason that does not allow us to access the interenet and we really need to re-read our emails at a time like this then we need to think about backing up email.
It's made specifically for the email at gmail.com, then there is a tool that can backup to email us, his name Gmail Backup, this simple tool allows us to read our email when we are offline and read it whenever we need. whether we can directly connect to gmail.com when we use this tool? whether there are other things that need we need to successfully run the Gmail Backup?
Yes, the IMAP access is necessary to run GMail Backup. If you don't have the IMAP access, you will get the following message:
"Error: IMAP: [ALERT] Your account is not enabled for IMAP use. Please visit your Gmail settings page and enable your account for IMAP access. (Failure)"
IMAP & Gmail Labs note : If you are using the Gmail Labs, please make sure that you have enabled the IMAP access into the All Mails folder. You can check this in the Settings/Labels page of your Gmail account. Otherwise, Gmail Backup will tell you, that you are using "Unsupported language of Gmail"!
