I use IMAP with Thunderbird. I have everything I want to save stored  
locally. I can pick up on my mobile device as well. There's nothing wrong with

This is a cautionary tale for anyone who uses webmail services  (IMAP).
Examples are Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoomail, and many  others.

With such services everything is stored 'in the cloud'... ie:  on remote
disks rather than on your own local HD.

I had a very  nasty experience yesterday and had to contemplate how to
recover. My  email went completely dark.

Since my Address Book was also on the  remote server, I lost ALL my email
addresses. Rebuilding it would be a  nightmare.

Soo, if you don't back up everything from the web to your  local disk, at
least copy your Address Book so that does not go  Poof!!!
