Email Backups

Because the majority of our customers on the Modwest Grid use POP rather than IMAP to read their email, our automated nightly backup routines do not include mailboxes unless this add-on is requested.

When IMAP is used to access email, all email stays on the server, so making nightly backups of this data can be helpful. Once enabled, all mailboxes associated with the account are backed up nightly.

Most IMAP clients store deleted messages in a Trash folder, so this is always the place to look in case of an accidental deletion, but having off-server nightly backups can provide additional peace of mind.
