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.

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:
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.
