Backup your e-mails

Step-by-step guide on how to backup e-mails.


The E-mail Backup Guide is similar to the file Guide and follows the same order when being set up. The only difference is that you will not have the Backup folders/files filter, and will need to actively choose the e-mail client from which to backup e-mails from.


To setup your backup profiles, click on the (...) menu button from the Backup box in the main application and screen and choose Manage Profiles. This will take you to the profiles overview page. There are 2 ways in which you can manage your backed up data. If you already have a profile created, just select it and you will be able to edit it from the right part of the window.






Otherwise, please follow the steps below to create a new email backup profile.

Step 1


Once you click on the Add Profile button, you will be asked to type in a name for the profile. Do this and then click on Add.




Step 2


From the right part of the window, in the What tab, select the desired e-mail client. BullGuard Backup has built-in support for Microsoft Outlook, Windows Mail (Windows Vista only), Windows Live Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird.






Click on the Edit button next to your e-mail client option. If several users have access to the e-mail client on the same Windows Account, you may need to select your own e-mail identity to backup.


Please choose the e-mail folders you would like BullGuard to back up from your computer.

Step 3


In the next step, you will need to choose the location where you want to backup the files. The backup can be stored on the Online Drive, or on the local computer (usually using an external hard disk or a CD/DVD). You can choose the location from the Where tab.




Step 4


All Backup profiles can be scheduled to either be started manually when it is convenient for you or to backup important documents on a regular basis preventing information loss. You can schedule a profile from the When tab.






Never, I’ll start it myself: You will need to run this profile manually to back up the information.


I want to select a schedule: You can set the profile to run automatically at set time intervals. This will ensure that any information included in the profile will be backed up on a regular basis.

Step 5


The Advanced Backup settings allow you to further customize your profile by adding special features such as encryption, versioning and backup compression. These settings can be configured from the How tab. To learn more about these options click here. When done, click Add.






The profile will now appear in the profile list accessible form the main Backup section. That is also where you can edit, rename, run or delete it.
