No IMAP profile has enough space for a year-backup.

Evolution supports off-line IMAP. Google gives 15GB free. Fastmail has

Is there any such thing as an instant remote server, which would be

No-one is recommending that you run your own server, especially as you
have no experience of this. I guess you could configure a cloud service
(e.g. Amazon) to run your own server software but let's just say it
