Go back up your Gmail

There are reports all over the web about users losing all of the mail in their inbox, which is sort of scary considering how much a lot of us rely on Gmail as a sole mail source.  My suggestion: pick an e-mail client that can use POP, enable POP in Gmail, download all of your e-mail, back up the download however you back things up.  You could probably set up some sort of way to do this daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

Note that Google's PR department is stating that this only affected 60 accounts, but what if one of those accounts had been yours?
