At a time in your employed lifetime, you must have experienced the need of backing up your emails. Mostly, at the time of resigning, people start looking out for such services. Though, a complex email backup can be done via MS Outlook and few other services (I will be writing a separate post for that); today I am sharing a similar online service which is free, fast and simple to use.

So, DropMyEmail is lucky enough to become the first website to be featured in our CoolWebSiteOfTheDay section. *Clapping*
DropMyEmail.com as the name suggests, is as simple as dropping a file into a folder. Its free sign up offers 500MB of free storage which can be upgraded. Though most people would say that 500MB is not enough, true, but with such simpler services and other features, you would not mind creating an account on it.
Once you login, all you need to do it to enter your email account information in it and it will start backing up the emails for you. It supports almost all major email platforms like Gmail, Google App, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc. Still, you can use IMAP, POP settings if you can't find your email service provider in the list. It also supports email Migration, in case you want to migrate emails from one account to another. For example, I would love to transfer my office mail to my personal backup email ID.
