Archiving googlemail


Walsingham

Recommended Posts

I'm keen to archive all my old gmail emails and files, now that I have big storage available. Can this be done, and if so how?

What would be the point? Google gives you infinite storage space and the e-mails stored on their servers are never ever going away.

 

And I can also be helpful: Use Gmail's settings to activate POP, then follow the instructions there to configure the mail client of your choice to get your e-mails. Finally, do the archiving through said mail client.

...Because I don't trust Google to be there indefinitely and I have emails from my mum I want to keep, as well as work stuff. far better on some DVDs.

 

Thanks for the hint.

It wouldn't be difficult to code a script to do it for you, so it's certainly possible and somebody has probably already done it.

 

There are some things which are best done by hand and not trusted to cylons. I mean scripts.

Well if you code it yourself, or verify the source before using it, you'll be fine :D

Does the same process work for archiving e-mail from Yahoo and Hotmail?

 

 

It should. Although with Yahoo you have to pay money.
