26. Email and backing up

Last week I had a serious problem with my computer, and as one stage I thought I was going to loose all my data. Fortunately I had back-ups of all my files. There was only one problem - email. I really do not understand why they make it so difficult to copy across or back-up of email so difficult. This made me re-think about the way we email.

While waiting for the computer to be fixed, I found that the email program Thunderbird can be installed on a USB memory stick. This means I can now not only access email from any computer via my USB memory stick, but also I can back up everything easily. Subsequently, I have found several colleagues who do the same.
