Hello everyone, 

 

My name is  Daniel and I am looking for a perfect backup solution for Mac email clients. I completely agree that Time Machine is the best option to backup on Mac but not for emails. I am more focused on emails, their attachments, address books and contacts. I want to only focus on email backup as my business is so. I run a couple of email clients, one is apple mail and other is outlook 2016 for mac. So is there any app like Time Machine that only focusses on Email Backup?

Hello Daniel,

 

Time Machine is the best and free solution for backup on mac, it not only backs up the entire system but also the emails. To only backup emails, you will have to setup TIme machine and check out other marked locations to be backed up. However, there are multiple backup solutions that are available as an alternative to Time Machine but unfortunately but they are paid apps and you can find them any search engine with "Alternative to Time Machine" as the search input. 

 

Some backup queries have come up earlier too on this forum, you can have a look at them if they are of help:

I am not trusting on Time Machine anymore. These links were quite helpful. Thanks

carbon copy cloner works well and creates bootable backups.
