For testing purpose, I exported my inbox to desktop. I got a file "INBOX.mbox". When I clicked on it, it opened into a folder with 3 files in it. What do I do with them and how do I retrieve the emails?
I have a similar issue, I'm not a MAC user, but my Director is and he wants me to backup onto an external hard drive once a week, his email, which I am to understand uses "MAIL". ( not Outlook as that is used for another business ).
I have read the various posts, but they seem quite dated now and wondered if someone could kindly just in simple terms advise the process in being able to back up and restore the email files ( should we need to restore at some point ) if things have changed...?
As I don't have a MAC I don't know about the for-mentioned Timemachine... I'll look into this as well but would appreciate any advise on the above please?
I have done this many times on a PC, for Outlook 2003, and 2010 where you can copy the outlook.pst file and restore it in a particular location, however imagine this is different for a MAC on MAIL.
I just thought I should highlight the point that we need to backup both inbox and sent items, which also include any sub folders within both of those.
Any advise is appreciated.
