Editorial Now that everything is moving to the cloud internet, you might think that data loss is a thing of the past. Sadly, as the past few months have taught us, this actually isn't true; we first had the Microsoft/Danger disaster, and now we have Palm and Sprint facing a class-action lawsuit over data loss for webOS phones. All this raises the question: how safe is it to store your precious data on the internet, and do you really trust the internet?

RE[4]: So how do I backup GMail?

Member since:

Will it transfer the labels used in Gmail to (for instance) Thunderbird's labeling system??

Labels in GMail show up as folders in any IMAP client, allowing you to retrieve your messages as easily as e-mail from any IMAP server. The only downside is that messages with multiple labels will appear in multiple folders, causing multiple copies to be downloaded.
