There are various ways to backup your Gmail account. You can have the emails downloaded via POP or have them auto-forwarded to another account. In this article, we’ll discuss how to use another Gmail account to backup your primary Gmail account. It’s just a one time set it and forget it method, hence you should definitely implement this if you use Gmail.
To begin with, you would obviously need to create another Gmail account, preferably with a different password (common sense, I know).
We’ll use Gmail’s Mail Fetcher to backup emails from the primary Gmail account. This method can also be used to backup emails from other accounts like Hotmail and Yahoo, but you need to ensure that they support POP access.
Here are the steps.
First, go to Settings (on the top right) in your main Gmail account and click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
