Gosh. Mine looks so primitive in comparison.

Really?!?! I did not know this, but I am a little afraid to try it. I don't
have enough space to spare for back-ups. I am worried about all sorts of
other things: marked threads, importing messages, associations, etc., just
in case they need some manual fixing/intervention.
I dread the very thought of setting up another machine one day. It is very
time-consuming. That's why I always SSH to this machine and keep things
centralised. Web-based solutions seemed appealing, but my host keeps
upgrading so I sometimes lose settings, e.g. with Horde: filters,
look-and-feel, shortcuts, keys.
