Now that I have my email server just about ready to fly, I would like to ask about server backup strategy.  What is the most effective method of backing up all OS email configuration and data?  I was thinking about first dumping to another machine via the network and then going to tape.  If this is done, I would imagine that TAR should be used.  Does this method capture all data properly?  I have been looking at the DUMP command but am not 100% certain as to which is a better alternative.  Are 3rd party backup applicaions a better alternative?
  I would like daily complete backups if possible.  I do not see this machine growing above 30 gigs any time soon.
