Virtual Vault Copies All Emails to your SD Card…

When Don told me about Virtual Vault I was intrigued. The claims to be a “Patent Pending” application that copies all emails sent and received from your BlackBerry on your SD card. I am not sure how they would get a patent on copying email which has been done on other platforms or backing up email which is done in apps like FileScout. The interesting part of Virtual Vault is that it saves all of your emails and lets you search, forward, and reply to those emails though it loses the attachments. It has both a consumer ($9.99) version for copying BIS emails and an enterprise ($29.99) for copying BES emails.

Features include:

  • Saves all received and sent emails (BIS for Consumer version and BES for Enterprise)
  • Import of all existing emails on a users BlackBerry into the “Virtual Vault”
  • Full email “Search” capability within the Virtual Vault™
  • Emails can be forwarded or replied to from within the Virtual Vault
  • Original email content can be edited before being sent thru the Virtual Vault
  • Does “not” save attachments or hyperlinks
  • Each Virtual Vault file is Password Protected
  • Multiple Virtual Vault Files Can be saved

I am actually very surprised that RIM allowed Virtual Vault into App World. RIM’s SDK states that you are not allowed to use it to create an alternative email client and Virtual Vault walks a fine line of what I consider an email client. Virtual Vault does have a password protection feature, thus copying of BES email to an SD card can get you into some trouble with your company’s security department, so be careful if you use it on your BES email.

If this is something you have been wanting to do, you can find the Consumer version of Virtual Vault for $9.99 at this link and the Enterprise version of Virtual Vault for $29.99 at this link.

  1. Ok. $9.99 expensive for an app like this.

    Thanx for sharing…

  2. Wow..I agree with you. How did this get into App World? I think it’s an awesome app, even though most emails offer this if you leave the email on the server and just delete it from the device. $9.99 is expensive if you look at it that way.

  3. RIM should have backup databases to sd card built into the bbOS.

  4. I can see this being a useful tool for the business market.

  5. I do like the Search ability, which I wish my university email had; but, no saving of attachments and hyperlinks and a $10 price tag? No thanks.

  6. The App World link does not appear to work, and searches do not show the app either. Did RIM pull it from App World?
