Alternative download sites

We have decided to promote our tool a little bit to get more users and eventually testers. As a result, we published the tool on three sites up to know. The sites are:

Incremental backup

Downloading all emails from your Gmail Account every time you want to backup your emails would be a nightmare. In this case it comes in hand the incremental downloading feature of email.

Gmail Backup checks all emails in the Gmail Account whether their are already downloaded. If so than it skips them. It only download emails which are not presented in your local copy. However, the checking emails takes time too.

As result, we recommend to specify the date since you want to download emails. For example:

gmail-backup.exe backup backup passwd 20080101

Comment subscription

The new feature for our site. I added support for comments subscription. Now you can (both anonymous as well as registered users) subscribe to comments of given node.

When users, either anonymous or registered, post a comment, they can subscribe to comments follow-ups. Notifications will have a teaser of the node and a link to the comment. Notifications will also have links that will allow the user to unsubscribe.

To subscribe you have to enter a valid email address and activate check box "Notify me of follow-up comments posted here."
