    Backup Solution

    Everyone in my household uses Windows XP and Office 2003. I'm after a backup solution to backup everyone's e-mail to a remote server, but also further options for backing up things like folders containing work. Can anyone suggest any programs?

    I use mozilla thunderbird for email, it stores all mail in the users profile, makes easy for backups even just using the crud that comes with Windows XP.

    I'm sorry, but I've tried and hated Thunderbird. It doesn't come close to Outlook 2003

    What's wrong with using XP's built-in backup program? You can schedule backups to a remote folder. I assume that your mail is in a personal folders file, which can be backed up.
