Hi All,

Would like to do backups of my current Iredmail setup, which runs as a guest on a KVM server.

I was backing up the whole virtual image from the KVMhost.

Would like to actually just backup the actual folders that require in case of a fresh install is required.

Which folder(s) should I be backing up?

Regards
