Note: i am speaking about backuping an ENCRYPTED wallet, and with a good encryption and a good password.

What if you just put the wallet in your email services? You can just send it to yourself and well now you have it stored there. Google mail, yahoo mail etc...

If you have MSN you can simply put the file on Skydrive.

It is MUCH safer than having it on your hard drive/usb pen and if you encrypt your wallet in a decent way it's totally safe.

Yes, that would be fine. But I would not recommend that be your _only_ copy you have. All of the services you listed have had "hiccups" and lost some people's data.

.
(Email-Backup) is MUCH safer than having it on your hard drive/usb pen and if you encrypt your wallet in a decent way it's totally safe.
Encryption and backup is necessary but quite dangerous for a beginner as your Coins may vaporize if you happen to do a mistake during encryption - backup - restore - decryption.

Thus before encryption and backup of real Coins you may want to do a test run with an empty wallet.

Only if you succeed to restore an encrypted test-wallet from scratch (after deinstalling BitCoin and deleting all existing data), only if you know how to handle the wallet.dat to get it working within a new installed BitCoin program, only then you should start encrypting your a real wallet.

By the way, I think it would be a good idea for BitCoin developers to create an automatic backup/restore feature that can be used not only by freaks who know how to move files but by normal people too.

Go ...
If it's possible for a non-specialist to add features to the bitcoin client, there must be links to the team, its expectations and the necessary expertise.

Thus giving advice please give corresponding links too - where to 'go' and that's certainly not Google.
