    It’s indeed so scary to think of loosing mails due to an unwanted glitch! Hope Gmail backup software will help in restoring the confidence & in turn mitigating the risk as well.

    Yeah, it is quite concerning. Not to mention another blogger ( just said that Google blocked his account without warning.

    Looks like the software doesn’t backup automatically but it’s still better than nothing. Wondering whether the restore works too though.

    I’m moving my main email contact from Gmail to my domain’s (should have done this long ago) and used Gmail as a backup
