I would like to know if anyone knows a reliable method to backup all your Dreamhost IMAP email to a local harddrive?
I’m using Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1.8.
I’ve read the Dreamhost Wiki article (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Backup_Email_to_Your_Computer) which outlines how to do it using POP3.
Is this the only option? Once upon a time there was a Thunderbird extension that let you pull all your IMAP email down to a local location but I don’t know how reliably that backup could then be used to restore your IMAP account if it got deleted, and I’m not sure that extension exists anymore.
Thanks in advance.
