MailStore Home 11.0 is out
MailStore Home is a popular email backup solution that non-commercial users may use to back up data from locally installed email clients and directly from email servers.
We reviewed MailStore Home in 2011 for the first time and concluded that the program was well suitable for creating local backups of emails, even from online providers such as Gmail or Yahoo Mail, and that it supported an impressive range of features besides the core backup functionality.
MailStore Home is also an interesting option when you hit online storage limits online or locally, or want to speed up an email program.
MailStore Home 11.0 is the newest version of the program. It is still available for all supported versions of the Windows operating system, and free to use for non-commercial use.
MailStore Home 11.0
You can run a check for updates in the MailStore Home software or download the latest version from the official project website instead. Just click on "check for updates" on the first page that opens when you start MailStore Home on your system.
The program runs a check for updates and prompts you to download and install the latest version.
MailStore Home 11.0 may prompt you to convert the archive on first start after installation, and you may get another prompt to configure automatic updates and anonymous data collecting (the latter is opt-in).
The new version of MailStore Home includes several improvements and various fixes. The application supports TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 for outgoing connections when accessing email servers in the new version. That's reason enough to upgrade to the latest version if you use the email backup software to back up Pop3 or IMAP accounts directly.
Another security-related improvement is that the developers hardened the management of encryption key files in the new release.
MailStore Home 11.0 stores recovery records in separate containers in the new version. The separation of records means that corrupt or broken databases may be rebuild directly; in other words, it is no longer necessary to export and re-archive messages after the upgrade to the new version.
The developers added a new search filter to MailStore Home 11.0 that you may use to search messages by archive date.
Archiving data refers to the date backups were created and not to the date the actual emails were sent or received.
MailStore 11.0 includes six fixes for issues including updates for third-party libraries used by the application. You can check out the full changelog on the official website.
Now You: Do you archive your emails?
thanks Martin, my favorite mail back up. And its great for searching
run exchange 2013 server here and use gfi mailarchiver to archive stuff.
looked at mailstore before but not really what I needed as I needed to have web access to archives, rolling auto database creation, etc.
for most, it felt like it was a great product. just didn’t fit MY needs. so I would encourage people to check it out.
Mailstore is great; I didn’t find much joy in using the program for accessing and archiving mail directly; however, I did find I could export all email to an MBOX file that can then be imported to Mailstore. Makes for a great backup.
This looks very interesting and useful. I will try it out! Thanks.
Using the app for long now. Great app.
Do you archive your emails?
Yes, with the Bat!
Thanks. Great for archiving old outlook backups.
@Martin – “The developers added a new search filter to MailStore Home 11.0 that you may use to search messages by archive data”
You meant “by archive date”, right?
Yes, you are right. Thanks!
@Martin Above us there is someone with an email link to The Bat. Can you review that one also because it has encryption?

Have used Mailstore years ago to change .psd outlook to .eml format for thunderbird and worked a treat. Since then, never needed it but, it’s nice to know it’s still being developed.
Thanks for the review Martin.
I tried this application for archiving emails from my Outlook. Few days later, I found that most of the images in my EMails were absent.
Currently, I use Mail Backup X to archive emails. It comes with Uncached Data Warning tag for the emails with broken images.
This application also fulfills those attachments.
That resolves my problem. I found this from here:
Thanks Dame_A for the link.
Mail Backup X is doing the archiving automatically. i don’t have to set a separate schedule for that now. I also found few more features that MailStore doesnot offer. I have configured my account for Mirror Backup. One copy of the archives is automatically getting saved at my external drive. i think that will be helpful at system crashes
