Yes that was also my experience - I started using Labs under the bots
project and it was not that reliable than TS, e.g. no backups of the
file system and stuff like that - hope this has changed with the tools

You're in for a world of difference. If you haven't switched over, you should try now.

E.g. what about E-Mail? Do I have the possibility to forward mail
addresses like e.g. drtrigonbot@tools.wmflabs.org into a file?

This isn't available yet, but we hope to have this worked out soon. It's waiting on legal.
