I was wondering what could be a good strategy to backup Gmail's emails locally.
As an Outlook 2010 owner, I thought I could use it to download all messages locally, using POP3, in place of IMAP, to avoid a potentially destructive sync, on Gmail's failure (in case Gmail should eventually loose all messages, an IMAP sync would delete everything locally).
As Oulook is a resources-eater, I would provide offline downloads manually, say once a week
Alternatives? Your thoughts?
