Chapter 20. Email > Backing Up Email

Backing Up Email

Entourage 2004 provides an extraordinarily simple way to create a backup of any message folder. If necessary, the backed-up folder can later be imported into the same copy of Entourage, into a different copy (when copying messages to your laptop, for example), or into any other Mac or Windows program that supports the MBOX text format.

To back up a message folder

1.
Select a folder in the Folders list (such as the Inbox, for example) and drag it onto the Desktop.

Entourage creates a backup of all messages in the folder using the MBOX text format (Figure 20.38).

2.
If the dragged folder also contains subfolders that you want to back up, they must be dragged separately onto the Desktop.
