Best way to backup / restore mail folders


Hi,

I use KDEPIM (KDE 3.4) for email and I was wondering what is the best way to backup and restore my mail folders in case I want to reinstall my system. I don't want to loose my emails.

Thanks...

just run a standard tar backup of them, as a cronjob or something similar

tar -cjvf /home/user/Mail /var/backup/username.tar.bz2

etc...
