Using Gmail as Email Backup? Think Again.

I forward all of my POP email to Gmail accounts for easier web access and to serve as a backup in case my desktop email client eats my incoming messages. I have nearly 2 years of email saved this way. After reading Mom, Google Ate My Gmail on Gigaom, I may have to think about a backup strategy for my backup strategy.

Google now says that around 60 accounts were affected by the message-deleting glitch.
