Email goes back a long way. And so too, perhaps, do your archives. If you happen to be one of those obsessive savers of email, then Google’s newly announced Email Uploader might just be of interest to you.
If you’ve got a lot of email history odds are it’s in a number of different formats. Putting it all into a single format, and in a single location, would be a boon, especially if you have the need to dredge back through them from time-to-time. The Email Uploader lets you “push your archives” up to your Google Apps email account, where they’ll float away on the cloud until you need them. And, as an added bonus, you’ll be able to access them anywhere you can get on the Internet.
The Email Uploader for Windows, however, is limited to moving your Outlook archives (2003 and greater) up to the cloud. The Mac client, on the other hand, will let you load archives from Apple Mail, Eudora, and Thunderbird. And, Google warns us, this will only work for a Google Apps email account--not for gmail.com or googlemail.com accounts.
