The easiest way to maintain email backups on your Mac

'Horcrux is handy since you don't actually have to think about it when it's running'

Horcrux uses the standard IMAP protocol to access the emails. IMAP is a common protocol used by most email service providers like Gmail, iCloud, Outlook, Exchange etc to fetch emails. Don't worry, we've made it super easy.

In case you inadvertently delete an important email, you can undelete it with just a click. Also included is a migration assitant in case you need to move to another email service.

You can add any number of email accounts. Backups will be made in the set frequency.

Imagine if you lost years of your correspondence by loosing access to your Gmail account. And you need to search THAT message with vital information now. Horcrux can save your life and wallet in a very unobtrusive way. Recommended app for every heavy Gmail user.

Does what it says very well

by Houndsoul

This app literally saved my digital life. I was setting up scan to email on a certain unnamed scanner and possibly I entered some wrong settings. Since my email is IMAP based, this for unknown reasons wiped out my entire mailbox trash included, Thanks to this app and its daily backups I was able to get it all back.

Just does the job perfectly

by TL-Photography

I seem to have my whole life on email and it’s all stored in the cloud which scares me. This was exactly the type of program I had been looking for. All I wanted was something to just backup in the background and know that I would not loose everything if the worst happend. Simple little program which does the job perfectly. Thanks for developing.

Saved me !!

I had a friend wanting to move his hosting, moving his email accounts. I setup Horcurx to backup his 5 email accounts. I went to move his current email but as i had to remove IMAP accounts and readd the email was gone. I used the restore feature and am now uploading his email to the new server. Thank you
