Two questions: Does it need to be remote, and why just the mail
spool? Why not the entire machine?
I'm currently backing up my machine at home to a WD "My Passport" USB
drive, doing a monthly full and nightly differential, using a script
that employs rsync. Each backup set looks like a full backup. Works
like a champ. I'm going to use the same script on the new mailserver
I'm building at work.
I have two drives, which I swap once-a-month. The out-of-service
drive goes in the safe. At work I'll probably do three or four, with
at least one in the bank safety deposit vault.
