A Google engineering team started an internal 'organization' dedicated to this called the Data Liberation Front. They are working through all the Google products and will continue to update their site as new or improved methods for moving data in and out of their web applications are created. The DLF sees themselves as being a bit subversive, because a ...
The key is configuring your account to be accessible via IMAP. I've used IMAPSize to backup GMail accounts. To schedule regular backups on a server I use OfflineIMAP. Although a quick G search reveals tons of tools/scripts/services to do backup of IMAP servers and especially of GMail.
There's an option in your blog's admin panel to do this. It’s your content; you can do with it whatever you like. Go to Tools -> Export in your WordPress.com dashboard to download an XML file of your blog’s content. In addition to any manual backups you make, blogs hosted on Wordpress.com are regularly backed up by their own processes.
Update: This is now available from a print/share/export menu on board and card detail. Not currently. But it has been requested often and should be coming soon. There is currently a card for this: https://trello.com/card/board/data-export/4d5ea62fd76aa1136000000c/4e9d8a91f482dd34ea18335a
You could add your Gmail account as a new IMAP account to Thunderbird. From there you can just drag them from your old account folder to the Gmail/[All Mail] folder. See http://email.about.com/od/gmailtips/qt/How_to_Import_Mail_from_Mozilla_Thunderbird_in_Gmail.htm for steps.
One way is to log in using a mail client that supports IMAP. You can then export the emails to a backup location, but this is a bit laborious. If you want a continuous backup, you could try something like imapsync. This would require you to run your own backup IMAP server and schedule a regular task to perform the synchronisation. Edit: Preserving labels ...
What about Jungle Disk? It will set up an s3 account as a local drive. I'm not sure what sync capabilities it has natively, but your mac has rsync built-in and you could use that. There's more discussion about other Amazon s3 clients in the question about the best Amazon s3 file manager utility.
I've been using Dropbox for the last year and I love it. If I had to say one thing I like about it, is that it does everything other backup systems do, but with no hassle at all (a bit like Macs vs PC's ^^). Since I installed it, it doesn't even seem like I'm performing back-ups, because I actually always work with the "My Dropbox" folder as if it were the ...
You have two options: forward the emails to yourself and remove the attachments when doing it (and afterwards delete the original emails); or use a desktop client to download the emails via IMAP and remove the attachments from them (not deleting the entire emails as is specified in the example you mentioned) - Thunderbird and Outlook seem to allow it. ...
As a stopgap, there's a (third party) XML export bookmarklet here: http://bryanesmith.com/downloads/trello-dump/ Note: Using this bookmarklet can break HTTPS. You might want to logout and login again after using this tool.
There is NO way that I know to do a complete backup (defined as an off-line copy that you can restore from). You can export your post and comments via Settings > Basic > Export Blog - and this will let you re-import those posts and comments into the same or another (Blogger) blog. You can save your template via Design > Edit HTML > Download full ...
There isn't a way to do it from the web interface, but there is an API for uploading documents. The google-docs-upload project seems to be exactly what you want, although I've not tried it myself.
Consider got-your-back which "is a command line tool that backs up and restores your Gmail account". You can invoke it like this: python gyb.py --email email@example.com --search "from:firstname.lastname@example.org" --folder "mail_from_pip" After completion you'll find all the emails matching the --search in the specified --folder, along with a sqlite database.
For my iPhone, I use Google Sync, which works flawlessly. If you go to the Google Sync homepage, you'll see that they also have Contacts sync for Nokia S60. I would recommend trying Google Sync out. This will sync your contacts with Gmail's contacts, so you can even access them through any web browser.
I have had success using IMAP Tools to backup other (non-Gmail) IMAP accounts. I used both imapdump.pl and IMAPToMbox.pl; they generate one text file per email or one text file per folder, respectively. Both commands allow specifying which IMAP folders (Gmail's tags) you want to back up. This method suits me well, 'cause I can backup my account ...
Check out LifeHacker's answer to the same question. In a nutshell, they said : a paid service like Backupify Gmail to Hotmail your favorite email client as IMAP unix 'fetchmail'
You can add the people that you are following in the Google Reader and you'll have, besides the backup of all your favorite tweets, also a really powerful search ability. Maybe it's not saving them locally, but I think this is even better, than have them locally on your device.
you can also try this free tool, written in java: http://code.google.com/p/tumblr-backup/ but it just backs up the photos. But an advantage is, that it does incremental backups, starts on each run where it left off the last time.
Even though there are some workarounds it's strongly not recommended, because either of these services were designed to handle that. Also if it's used to get some extra quota it's against Dropbox's ToS and I'm pretty sure that it is against the Ubuntu One's as well. Here is what a Dropbox dude (N.N.) said on this matter: HELLo! Note that in the ...
You can always use a TrueCrypt container file within your dropbox folder to accomplish on-the-fly encryption/decryption. see here for more info Under development now is also Boxcryptor that offers similar functionality, but it's still in early testing and not recommended for actual use as of now.

CloudHQ is a paid service that supports one-way syncing between a variety of cloud platforms I can't comment on whether or not the output would be supported by LibreOffice or HTML, but it seems likely that it would. I would email the developers.

If not, then you may want to consider if an online backup really suits your needs, and see some generic thoughts on some test results at Best choice for a personal “online backup” in ...
Gmail backups have become a somewhat timely topic, as thousands of Gmail users had their account reseted by accident recently. Here's one more backup solution from the comments to that Engadget post: I have all my GMail emails forwarded to my Hotmail account, of which all of the emails are downloaded locally on 2 different computers. I've had my ...
The easiest way may be to use a local POP client like Outlook to download them. Then you can easily export or save them to text. For an individual email, you could use Print to print the contents to a file on your machine... but that would get painful quickly for more than a few emails.
