Customer Reviews

Deserves far better rating!

I think there were some issues with the earlier versions which led to a handful of 1-star ratings — which is really unfortunate because in its current form, this app is great. It backs up multiple gmail accounts to my backup disk every hour, runs in the background — very nice, polished app. Feels great to know that my gmail is fully backed up.

Terrific program — solves gmail backup

This is (should be) a Five Star App. If you are looking for a solution to backup your gmail, this is it. The support is great too. I had BackUp Gmail running, out of sight and out of mind, for ages. I upgraded my OS and changed my gmail settings and had a glitch. I emailed support and got an immediate fix. Works great and responsive support.

good app

This app works ! It “batches” 100 emails at a time, and there is a time lag between batching sequences (I think the lag is related to the size of the 100 emails it is batching). Nonetheless, this app backed up 20,000 emails over several hours. It works great. MDD
