A minimalist application designed to offers you the possibility to quickly backup your emails by creating easily accessible PDF documents for each message
Backing up emails is essential for logging your online activity: most mail servers have a storage limit which you cannot surpass. In addition, having your correspondence stored safely in multiple locations protects you in case of server problems, change of service terms and more.
Simple and efficient e-mail to PDF backup
Email Archiver Pro is a simple application that can help you backup your email messages as PDF documents. This format is preferable because the files will then be available on any device that provides PDF support regardless of the operating system.
At the same time, the documents generated by Email Archiver Pro can be indexed by Spotlight, reducing the time you spend searching for specific messages. The application includes its own search window where you can filter the archived emails by subject, sender or content.
The application generates a folder that retains the Mail.app hierarchy: each email account has its own directory which comprises folders for all email categories (archive, collected address, deleted messages, drafts, filtered email, inbox, sent messages). Moreover, the messages are grouped by year and month.
Built-in support for automatic back up of e-mail attachments
Email Archiver Pro is also able to extract the email attachments and places them in a new folder alongside the PDF file associated to the respective email. To learn more about what you can do with the application, there is available a Email Archiver manual provided by the developers.
Noteworthy is that Email Archiver offers you the possibility to exclude certain folders and choose specific directories as the emails source. The Email Archiver Pro application extracts the data from your Library folder and you will have to identify the respective folders manually.
Fast and uncomplicated incremental e-mail backup app for the Mac
Last but not least, Email Archiver Pro can be used for constantly backing up your email accounts: after the initial export, the application will only add the new emails thus greatly reducing the processing time.
All in all, Email Archiver Pro proved to be a very useful and easy to use OS X utility if you need to backup your email content to an easily readable and searchable format.
