I'm pretty new to this, so it may be a silly question.
There's probably a way in whm or something to backup email, but basically want I want to do is do a daily backup of the emails, and then have the backup ftp'd to some other location.
Is the email in a folder somewhere that I can just gzip up and send, or is there a way to do incremental backups, or something I can buy that does this?
thanks.

all email (inbox, sent, subfolders, sub-pop-accounts, etc) is stored in /home/username/mail/

You can tar/gz this directory for each account and send it to a remote server or keep a local copy.

I saw an ad for a service that sounds like what you're looking for:

I have no relationship with them, don't know anyone who's tried them, and I don't know if it's a reputable company. I don't even know if it works. It sounds like what you're looking for though.
