- I want my personal copy of my emails.
- I want to download my emails.
- Pretty scared, I might lose my emails.
To be fair, I’m sure @Louis can deliver a better explanation.
Pretty scared, I might lose my emails.
To set your mind at ease, MXroute takes as many backups as possible; but it’s crazy how much time it takes to do it. Please, don’t get mad if the backup they provide you is close to a week at max. They have other clients to serve, and it’s a messy balancing act.
How do I backup my emails?
Pretty much all you require is access to IMAP; you don’t even need to use MXroute but you know, share the love and nudge nudge buy from them.
Here’s a direct quote from Louis on how their system it setup.
I use mbsync (http://isync.sourceforge.net/mbsync.html) to sync from imap to maildir. Then I do deduplication, compression, encryption, and versioning with borgbackup (https://www.borgbackup.org/). Finally I upload my borgbackup archive to multiple locations with rclone (https://rclone.org/).
I know I should keep my own backups, but are MXroute’s backups/archives available to the customer in case nobody tested restoring from their own backups?
You can’t access them directly, but we can restore the backups we have with a couple of clicks
