MailStore Home 7.0: Email Archiving Software

The one and only program that I use for all my email archiving - or backup - needs is MailStore Home. The core reasons for this are that it is dead easy to use and able to tap into all my email accounts effortlessly. Want examples? It supports Gmail and Yahoo Mail, all Outlook and Windows Mail editions, as well as Thunderbird, email file formats, and Pop3 and Imap mailboxes. For many providers, all you need to supply are your login credentials, and MailStore Home will take care of the rest.

It gets better though, as you not only get a software that can backup and restore your email mailboxes, but also one that lets you browse through your mails in its own interface. If that was not cool enough, it also offers advanced search options to find emails across all accounts fast and effortlessly.

Check out the guides Use MailStore To Backup Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Emails and How To Speed Up Thunderbird By Archiving Emails for additional information and tips about the software program.

One interesting feature is the ability to tap right into third party mail software storage installed on the PC. If you have Thunderbird or Outlook installed, you can directly backup those emails and mailboxes using MailStore Home. When it comes to archiving accounts via Pop3 and Imap, all it usually takes is to enter the email address and password to do that. Manual configuration options are available if that does not work right out of the box.

The developers of MailStore have released an update, raising the program's version to 7.0. Among the changes are a modernization of the user interface and better Microsoft Exchange Web Services support, including better error handling and client throttling support. The developers furthermore have fixed or improved hundreds of issues and smaller things in the email archiving software.

Verdict

MailStore Home 7 does not ship with a huge new feature set or improvements, but that is not something that users should be really concerned about, as it is already near perfection when it comes to email backup and archiving related tasks. Existing users can run the installer to update their installation to the latest version. Emails that have been archived by the software remain accessible after the upgrade. The MailStore Home update is available at the developer website, or with a click on check for updates on the software's start page.

      I’ve used MailStore home for a few years now, and am thoroughly pleased.

      When they say “one click restore”, does that mean you can restore your emails on a clean install on your email client (Thunderbird, Outlook etc.) or back to Mail Store itself ?

        What they mean by this is that you can open any email that you have backed up with the help of the program in your favorite email client.

      WINDOWS ONLY!
      (I sure wish Martin would put the OS in the first paragraph.)

      since it odes not say above, I googled the software and found out that it is indeed freeware (another useful piece of data that would be very helpful if it were included in the main article). Thanks for telling me about it anyway.

        About 99.9% of the software and services covered here are freeware.

        @lovingthesixties . . . seems as if you are angry about something . . .

      Since I can’t think of any niggling complaints like the Pasta-like or ’60’s commenters above, I’ll simply say, “Thanks for the info”. Never imagined an app like this existed.

      Since MailStore Home is limited to 3 (IMAP) accounts, it’s unfortunately not usable for me.
