David sharing my ignorance with you is my pleasure glad you got something out of the exchange, I know I did.
Some folks prefer to use a separate program for backing up only EMails for their EMail client. Others, like me, just use their preferred program for backing up everything, including EMails. Myself, I use SuperDuper! for my backups, and I do it once a week for both of my machines (I actually make 2 backups for each machine to two, separate external devices (SSDs). However, I am performing some disk cleanup every day. About 99% of that is having deleted EMails permanently removed right away. And that occurs multiple times each day, depending on how often I use each machine. I use Outlook 2016 as my EMail client, and the procedure for having deleted EMails removed permanently is quite simple: after selecting EMails to be deleted, they wind up in the Trash folder. Moving to the Trash folder, I click once on the first one, then do a Select All. Then, with the mouse pointer on the Trash icon, I do a right click, and a small menu of options appears, with one of them being "Empty Folder". When I select that, a dialogue appears that says "Are you sure you want to permanently delete all the messages in this folder". When I click on Delete, they are gone. In this way, the EMail database maintained by Outlook 2016 is "lean and clean".is it that necessary to back up mails separately? or just time machine is sufficient enough?
I came across this article. https://www.mac-help.com/threads/backups-backups-backups.223959/
Montepirlo defines the need. is that justified?
