As part of my plan to move away from Gmail (Google Takeout seems to work okay), I also need to download an IMAP email account from another provider.
Can anyone recommend a software or service that backs up an entire email account to an archive file? Preferably in a format like MBOX?
I was hoping for a simple Linux command line utility that could take care of this matter.
I found an open source Linux program called archivemail. However, it has not been updated in many years and could not connect when there’s an “@“ in the username — i.e. the username is your email address. This could have been such a good solution.
When searching for solutions, it appears like almost everyone is using either Gmail or Outlook today. Most of the posts relating to Linux are old and mostly outdated.
