You could always use runbox as a dropbox that gmail then picks up from. Then you have the backup on runbox consistently, but you have it also in gmail for flexibility.

Then you simply have to ask if you want google to be reading your email.

> Web, POP3, IMAP, SMTP, and WAP access.
> Secure SSL access for webmail and email clients
> Also their webmail interface is very clean, simple and functional.

> Oh yes and it costs about £30 a year.
