For ye Google mail, contacts, calendar users out there...
Since switching from MS Office XP Outlook to Google, I haven't looked back. Google is a joy to use. But I do have concerns about backing up. Creating a backup copy of mail/contacts/calendar was easy with MS Outlook. But what about with Google?
1. I have set Google to save my mail and calendar info onto my computer for offline use. But does this constitute "back up"? I wonder -- if Google should ever corrupt or lose my online info -- would synching carry that error over to my local copy?
2. Contacts -- there's no local access for contacts. To me, contact info is even more critical than individual email. What do ye Google Mail users do for contacts backup?
