Backup Your PDF Postman Passwords

Protecting your passwords is an important responsibility in email encryption. Your PDF Postman passwords should be backed up regularly and stored in a secure place.  Your passwords may later be imported should you need to re-install PDF Postman. You can also use your backup to move your passwords to another computer.

Password backups are done from the PDF Postman settings > Passwords tab.

Simply click the "Export" button, and choose a location to save your passwords.

 The passwords and emails will be saved to a CSV file that you can open in a spreadsheet application.

To import the backup file, reverse theprocess. Click the "Import" button on the Passwords tab and select the file.

PDF Postman uses a simple CSV file for import/export.  You can import new passwords by adding them to a spreadsheet in a Email/Paswords configuration, and then saving the spreadsheet as a CSV file.  PDF Postman will add new passwords to it's existing password list.
