one file storing e-mails

Postby joecool250 » Sun Dec 06, 2009 11:32 am

is there a way to archive barca mail folders into one file (like MS Outlooks PST files)?

No, not possible, unless you move all e-mails into one MBX file.
Each folders has its own MBX file, index, backup. :)

If for example your PST gets corrupted, then you'll lose everything.
In case one MBX gets corrupted, you only lose mail for that folder, not the rest. In many cases you can eventually restore from the last backup file or even the copy when a backup has been done.

That's also why I don't like using Outlook, especially at work.
Outlook only has one PST file which has everything in it, including your address books, tasks and others.

Hope that helps. ;)

I have used Fookes Software's MailBag Assistant to archive older mail. It will read Barca/Pocomail and import a copy into it's own format (zipped mbx ?).

http://www.fookes.com/

Not free by any means, works without a hitch. Searches and filtering is excellent.

Disclaimer: I am a happy customer of a few of the Fookes software applications.

A free solution

This program can archive mail to and from various applications. And it is totally free. I've read that Pocomail and Barca mailboxes have standard mbox format so this backup may fall under the heading of "* .eml and other files" being the "other" part.

http://www.mailstore.com/en/

* Microsoft Outlook 2000, XP, 2003 and 2007
* Microsoft Outlook 2010 BETA (32-bit version only)
* Microsoft Outlook Express and Windows Mail
* Microsoft Exchange Server Mailboxes
* Hosted Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes
* Mozilla Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
* POP3 and IMAP (including webmail services such as Gmail and Yahoo)
* .eml and other files
