I have a client whose business uses Go daddy's POP3 Email system. Most of his users have laptops and are scattered around the country and their email is stored locally on their respectively laptops. We're looking for a way of backup up this email in the event of a laptop failure. I'd like to find an automated solution that doesn't require each user to remember to back it up to a USB drive nightly because that will never happen.

Don't know about godaddy in particular, but most email services have a setting that allows you to leave a copy of the email on the host. That is, you download a copy to your pc, but it also remains archived on the host.

I suggest you check their settings for such.

Yes they have that setting but it wasn't checked when I looked. But even if I check that now that just makes that take effect from the emails from now and going forward not the 3 years of messages in their various folders.

Couple online tools such as carbonite backup solution which runs and keeps the backups online.  There are other online backup solutions.  You could also use crashplan.  Those are just a small list.  Carbonite is promoted by radio shows and I guess one of them is if you type in the words freebeer you will get a 3-4month bonus on a yearly plan etc.
