In my previous post, I wrote how a user can backup Google Mail / Gmail Details in Google groups. However, there are some disadvantage associated with it:

1> It’s quite an easy task when it comes to backing-up the data, but there is no way you can retrieve / restore the data.

2> The search function is no way closer to the search function what Gmail offers to you. Digging up information that you want will not be hassle free provided you have tons of data !

3> The biggest known problem with the above mentioned method is, you’ll be able to forward a copy of all the new incoming emails to the group automatically. If you want to take a back up of all the previous emails, then you’ll have to manually go to each email and will have to forward those emails to your google groups account ! A tedious task which will drain you out for sure !!
