I’ve just come across a new backup utility for Windows Live Mail thanks to Steven Hodson of WinExtra. The program is called MailBrowserBackup, and, as it turns out, you can actually use it to backup a lot more than just your Live Mail. The recently updated .NET 2.0 application also lets you make complete backups of Outlook 2003/2007, Windows Contacts, Windows Live Messenger, Live Messenger Plus!, Internet Explorer Favorites, Windows Calendar, and much more.
When running the program, it will automatically detect your profiles and accounts, allowing you to check or uncheck the boxes of the items you want to backup. And should disaster strike, you can also use the application to restore the backups it creates.
MailBrowserBackup is free software licensed under the GNU GPL v2. You can download it for Windows XP SP2, Vista, and Windows 7 from here.
