    Do you mean the mail app?

    Back it up with Time Machine.

    To backup and ARCHIVE email I use (and highly recommend!) Mail Archiver X from https://www.mothsoftware.com/

    You can archive to the built-in database or, as is my preference, to FileMaker Pro.

    Beatrix (the developer) is highly responsive to users - whether issues, problems, or suggestions.

    If you are a heavy or business email user, watakoola's suggestion looks good.

    Best way to back up mail on a Mac which is for personal use:
    1. Get an external drive.
    2. Get either CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper
    3. Use either to create a bootable cloned backup of your internal drive.

    Now... EVERYTHING will there, in finder format, and the drive is bootable, too.
    EVERYTHING.
