automagical archiving of POP/gmail?
I've just recently set myself up with gmail, and set it up to pick up mail from a couple of my domains, and set up
thunderbird on my home machine to pick up the gmail via pop, but, use the web interface on my laptop to access mail, and, I'm
kind of thinking at this point that it would simplify my existence if I only used the web interface.
Except one thing.
I want to have my mail archived here, in addition to on the google gmail servers.
Call me what you will...a skeptic, paranoid...I don't know, but I've seen free web services and mail accounts, etc. come and go,
or, stop being free, etc., and, for this and related reasons, I just want to make sure I have all mail backed up in my home/office.
So, I'm thinking, probably there's a way I can set up procmail or mutt or something, with cron, or something, to regularly download
the mail and archive it here, while only reading it on the gmail web interface.
Has anyone done this?
I'm sure I'm not crazy to think this can be done, but, in truth, I've never done anything quite like it.
I've only ever used POP or webmail interfaces, and never dealt with retreiving mail via a text-only environment.
Anyone have any tips or know of a good how-to that might be useful?
