    Back up gmail with pretty much any modern e-mail client (Thunderbird, Outlook, iMail) using the IMAP protocol. Works great.

    IMAP is great for getting mail from your email archives on your desktop into Gmail (for example, if you wanted to aggregate it into one location), but for archiving it from Gmail down to your PC, I would POP it. If you use IMAP, and Gmail deletes your online email — accidently or otherwise — then the deletions will sync with your desktop email client and and delete it all there, too.
