Two questions: Server-wide Backup & the role of Courier in Plesk?

    Two quick questions:

    1. If I wanted to perform a total backup of my remote server, including MySQL databases, what's the best approach? I'm hoping there's an open-source solution that would make a tarball or zip file for download? I can't spend a ton of money on a solution but I need to know that my efforts are covered!

    2. What's the role of Courier in Plesk? I've read about SMTP, LDA, POP and IMAP and it looks to me like Qmail is my SMTP/LDA and Courier handles POP & IMAP? I'm trying to tie DSPAM into my Plesk v8.3.0/Fedora 6 setup and it goes between the MTA and LDA as a 'delivery agent proxy.'

    1. If you are talking about how to backup the whole Plesk server on your (remote) computer, you can do it with the following command:
    ssh root@IP_OF_PLESK_SERVER '/usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup all -' > obtained_backup.file

    2. Courier provides the IMAP and POP3 service.
