How to Backup Palm Mail to my Desktop

Document ID: 2191HQ

You can use the conduit's backup feature to automatically save messages and preferences from Eudora on your Palm device to your desktop computer each time you perform a HotSync operation. When running the Eudora Mail Conduit in backup mode, the messages you have stored on your Palm device will be copied to your desktop computer as a backup.

This page explains how to configure the backup preferences from your desktop computer and your Palm device. It also explains how to force a restore and a backup.

This option is great for Palm users who use their Palm modems as their method of retrieving mail.


Configuring for Backup, Desktop

To set up the Eudora Mail Conduit for backup mode:


  1. Click the HotSync Manager icon located in your taskbar.

  2. Click Custom.

  3. Select Eudora Mail and click Change.

(Windows Eudora users have this icon in their toolbar that can also access the Eudora Mail Configuration window.

  1. The Eudora Mail Configuration window appears.

  2. In the Type of sync section, select Backup up to desktop.

  3. In the Action area of the dialog box, select Backup and auto-restore.

    Note:To make any action the default, select Make default. Not doing so will revert your setting back after one HotSync operation.

  4. Click OK to confirm your changes

From now on, every time you run a HotSync operation, your mail will be backed up.

To Force a Restore or Backup

To restore your preferences and messages:

  1. In the Action area, select Desktop overwrites Handheld (force restore).

  2. Make sure Make default is NOT selected.

  3. Click OK to accept the changes. Run a HotSync operation and the backup will be performed. On subsequent HotSync operations, the action will revert to what it was previously.

Configuring for Backup from Your Palm

As an alternative to changing your backup configuration from your desktop computer, you can also change it from the Palm device. If you change the configuration on both your Palm device and your desktop computer, the configuration most recently changed is used.

While in Eudora:


  • Tap Menu

  • Tap Options

  • Tap HotSync


  • The HotSync Configuration window appears.

  • Tap Backup to desktop. (Note that some options available on the desktop HotSync Configuration screen are not on the Palm device.)
