GMail Backup 0.102

This is the fifth pre-final release of the GMail Backup tool - the ultimate one-click solution for doing backups of your GMail account.

Here is the changelog of this version:

  • This version fixes errors reported in _unicodeHeader() [1, 2, 3].
  • The program also doesn't insist on creating the current.eml file [4].
  • We also removed the 40 day period, described here: [5].
  • The application also doesn't connect "home" every time it runs the backup or restore to check new versions. The GUI version contains the button "New Versions" for checking for new versions of GMail Backup and the command line tool has the "version" command [6].
  • In this version, we also improved support for Windows Vista [7, 8].

It is recommended to upgrade.
