I was going to suggest leaving out the index (the `Database.noindex` 
folder) since that doesn't behave well with Time Machine. I don't think 
the other files should cause any problems and it's a lot more important 
to have a backup of your settings files and the `Messages` folder. You 
can also leave out the `Attachments` folder since it's just a cache.
