What customers say about Kernel IMAP Backup

(4.9 / 5) 450 Reviews

I’m happy with the product and the service provided by the Kernel Team. Tool is a complete package that works accurately.


There was a phishing attack in my mail account, and I deleted the mail. But, I required to clean my entire mailbox. So, I took the backup and later deleted all my emails.


I do not consider this software as a backup software, but as a necessary tool for businesses who want to protect their emails.
