Does Time Machine makes a backup of MobileMe mail?

    I have my MobileMe account set up in the Mail app. And have Time Machine on also.

    I always keep my mail in the cloud, meaning I never move it into "On My Mac" folder, does this means that Time Machine does not back ups my mails?

    If so, how can do you keep a backup of all your mails?

    This is just a guess, but if you're seeing emails in Apple Mail, they have almost certainly been downloaded to your computer. Therefore, they are being backed up by Time Machine. Just because the email stays in sync with the MobileMe IMAP server doesn't mean there isn't a local copy on your hard drive.

    Again, just a guess.
