Gmail went down

The web was all a twitter with users unable to access Google's Gmail. It's so easy to take for granted that Google services will be available 24/7. I wonder how many people will now set up a local mail client (like Thunderbird) with POP or IMAP to backup their Gmail accounts. I just did. To do this yourself:

Download Thunderbird if you don't already have a mail client.

Enable IMAP in your Gmail account.

Configure your mail client.
