We recommend that you back up your Mail files on a regular basis for safekeeping. Ideally, you should make a copy of your entire aucmail directory (along with cusauc and aucinv) on a CD/DVD, external hard drive or other media on a regular basis. In addition, you can create a zip file of the essential data files in your Mail System and copy the zip file to another location. There is a file zipping function in the Mail system Utility Menu that will create a zip of the data files. This zip is for safekeeping also, and can be copied onto any other location or media.
There’s a new option in the Mail zip feature that will zip up just the files you’d want to transfer onto your traveling auction laptop/server for an outside auction. Most clients use this copy of the mail file to register buyers from at the auction site.
