EZ eMail Backup
EZ eMail Backup is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you create a backup of your email messages, account settings, signatures, message rules, address books, and other useful data that can be easily restored in case you lose all information.
It works with the following email clients: Windows Mail, MS Outlook, Eudora, IncrediMail, PegasusMail, The Bat!, PocoMail, Opera Mail, Netscape, and Thunderbird. Additionally, you are allowed to export the bookmarks stored by Internet Explorer.
You are welcomed by a multi-tabbed layout that provides quick access to the main features of the program: Backup, Restore, Schedule, and Options.
The utility lists all supported email clients in the primary panel, and lets you select the information that you want to save for each program (e.g. email messages, identities, settings).
You can also switch between the Standard and Wizard mode. The last one comes in handy especially for less experienced users, as it helps them configure the dedicated parameters step-by-step.
Creating a new backup and restoring data
EZ eMail Backup gives you the possibility to select the directory where the backup file is saved (EZB file format) and open the target location at the end of the task.
When it comes to restoring options, you are offered quick access to the files and folders stored in your computer, so you can easily select the file that you want to restore.
Scheduled tasks and other handy options
The tool lets you create scheduled backups for the selected email clients, specify the date and time, as well as configure the recurrence parameters (hours, days, weeks, months).
Other important features bundled in this utility enable you to overwrite the last backup file, create a new backup and keep only a custom number of backup files, encrypt data by setting up passwords, and back up the information to a single file or split the items using preset sizes.
Tests revealed that the utility carries out a task pretty quickly. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
An overall efficient backup utility
All in all, EZ eMail Backup proves to be a reliable application that comes bundled with a handy suite of features for helping you create backups.
