Google Email Uploader is a nifty application that helps you backup your mail. The application will install itself and allow you to upload all your e-mails from Desktop-based accounts into Gmail. Of course, that gives you freedom to use the application in many ways. Personally, I used this when I had to migrate all my ISP's e-mail from my Outlook account to Gmail. That process was not going to be easy if carried out manually. If your POP3 server doesn't keep a copy of your messages on the servers, you would have to send each e-mail one at a time to your Gmail account. Gladly, the application took care of everything for me. It even took on the task of saving the dates of the e-mails. Furthermore, it can even save important information as contacts and reminders, for you. The application only works in Windows platforms. It does also require that you use Outlook 2003 or superior, have a Google Apps account and have the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. But if you don't have the latter, Google will install it for you.
