When it comes to backing up emails, MailStore Home is that trusted companion that I have been using for a long time. What I really like about the product is that you can backup virtually any email account, be it a local account in a program like Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook, or an online account like Gmail or Hotmail.

Even better is that it is simple to setup but still powerful enough to do just what you want it to do. Basically, all you need is the username and password of the mail account, and sometimes the mail server information, to get started.

MailStore Home 8.0 has just been released and is now available on the official program homepage or as a direct update from within previous versions of the email backup program. If you have a MailStore version installed on your system, click on the check for updates link at the lower right corner of the screen just beneath the e-mail archive statistics it displays to you.

Note: The system requirements have not changed at all. MailStore Home is compatible with all versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system from Windows XP Service Pack 3 to Windows 8.

Check out the following guides to find out what you can use the program for:

MailStore 8.0 changes

You are probably asking yourself what's hot and new in the new version. Let me give you a quick rundown of the most important changes that the update brings along:

  • MailStore Home 8.0 supports Outlook 2013 officially now. The program also supports Office 365 click-to-run virtualization and Exchange Server 2013. Basically, support for mail components of various Office 2013 and 365 versions has been added to the application
  • The developers have localized MailStore Home so that it is now available in additional languages. I can't really say which are new and which are not, here is the list: Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish and Turkish
  • When MailStore detects multiple installed versions of Outlook on a system, it uses the latest detected version automatically.
  • During the archiving of email addresses, MailStore uses the source mailbox internal date in its duplicate message detection algorithm (IMAP and MAPI)
  • Fixed an issue where sent messages were sometimes displayed as received messages in search results.


The program gets better with every release. The bug fixes alone justify the update to the new version. If you like to work with localized versions, you may also find your language to be supported now by the program whereas it may not have been in previous versions. It is also a must have install for Office 2013 and Office 365 users.

    What to do when recovery is necessary if drive is encrypted?

    Note: If you encrypt the drive, you may not make use of the recovery disc that you can create using EaseUs.

      You need to gain access to TrueCrypt to make available the contents. If you have another Windows machine, you can extract the backup, move it to a USB Flash drive, and restore the backup using this unencrypted version.

    I assume EaseUS Todo Backup Free will allow me to create a VHD or ISO so that, after using my system bootup disk, will allow me to recover my files quickly and easily. Windows restore is so slow.

    Use Encrypting File System and just copy the files. Backup your EFS key certificate.

    I have great success with Crashplan. It has a feature that allows you to backup to another computer that could be on the same network or across the country. Best of all, that feature isn’t tied to the regular Crashplan subscription. So it’s a win-win for me.

    Martin, this is a great tip. I use it quite often, but lately I am looking into softwares that would offer me one click back up of certain folders on my HDD, but copy as it is, instead of XML or other format.

    I used a program in the past that backed up everything ‘nicely’ in XML format and when it was time to restore, I could not restore a single file, since then I am using Syncback to back up files ‘as is’, but clicking 10 different profiles is pain, one click would be better, any suggestion?

    FBackup offers such option but for only one time back up. For incremental back ups, you got to pay up.

    There is this other solution too. It gets things dne quicker. Just pointing it out. Its called Rollback Rx. Naturally its useful only when the underlying hardware is healthy. Say incase you were infected by a virus or were caught unaware because a file was accidently deleted. Rollback offers 256 bit AES which is really all you need unless ofcourse a fanatic terrorist is after your data. Periodic physical backup are just as necessary.
