This is an Add-On for SMS Backup & Restore app to:
- automatically upload backup files to Dropbox
- send automated emails after a backup.
This app does not appear in the list of apps in the phone launcher. It is used by the SMS Backup & Restore app and gets opened from the “Backup Settings” screen of that app.
This app was developed as an add-on rather than building it within the existing app for 2 reasons: first to keep the original app smaller in size, second keeping this app separate means the Pro version still doesn’t need Internet permissions.
This app uses the binaries provided by the Android port of JavaMail.
This app only has access to its own folder and does not have access to other Dropbox folders.
Check the “Use Browser for Authentication” if you want to use your default/external browser for authentication rather than the built-in functionality.
All the settings on the screen are dependent on the Mail Service Provider that you use. The details about the service can be found on the providers site. Some of the common ones are linked at the bottom of this section.
