Don’t store important data in email

Funny, cute an smart puppy - programmer, always reay to help anyone who oes not know anything about computersAre you using your email to store and archive your most precious information? Email was designed as a correspondence system, and isn’t really a good system for archiving things that are really important. There are dangers to relying on ISP email especially: one server glitch on their end or a mistaken keystroke on yours could cause all your information to go poof. Instead of storing your information in email, it would really be safer to archive it with a program designed specifically for that purpose. One such program is called MailStore. From their website: “With MailStore Home you can back up all emails in a central archive, even if they are distributed across different computers, programs or mailboxes. You can do this either on your PC or on a USB drive as a “portable” option. This way, you will never lose emails again and can search all of your emails extremely fast. You can still reply to or forward archived emails by opening them with a single mouse click in your standard email program.” The Home Edition can be found here: http://goo.gl/9xwzIo
