    How to Download GMail emails?

    Hey everybody, I wanted to download all the emails off of my Gmail account. Anyone know how to do this without manually downloading each individually?

    P.S. In my current email http://www.fastmail.fm (which is the best ever!) I can just highlight them all and download as a zip.

    I thought about using POP but I removed outlook from my comp a long time ago. I guess I could reinstall or...anybody know of a simple mail program that would do this quick for me?...or I could set up my built in Opera one...


    Any other ideas to get the mail?
    I thought maybe I could use a web archiver like httrack and save all the mail-but I don't know how to get it to login to email.

    Just use Outlook Express if you uninstalled Outlook.

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/ This one is pretty popular, but i am unsure if using an email client is what you want in this case or maybe you haven't seen what they can do for you. However it is the easiest and fastest way of accessing and responding to emails and allows you to save them permanently as well, with ease of use getting to them again.

    Otherwise this is a good replacement to outlook.

    I tried using outlook express, but the connection keeps timing out when downloading when it hits some of the emails with big attachments. I am going to try to get HTtrack to work. Does anyone know how to get these web archivers to work on sites with passwords? RobRich mentioned he used this, maybe by mentioning his name he will show up...

    Just about any email client can be set up to handle gMail (there are instrunctions for setting it up with any POP-3 client software right on the gMail site) or any normal POP-3 or IMAP email account - your messages can be set up to download automatically or be both left on gMail and downloaded too. Opera's email client works just fine. The only thing I don't like about Opera's client is that all the messages end up in one big file - the client in Sea Monkey (or any of the Mozilla email clients which now includes Eudora) makes it easy to set up as many folders (subdirectories) as you may want to keep your emails orgainzed.

    I can use the PoP just fine (except Outlook Express doesn't like to do big files) but I have another email that doesn't have POP support, I want to figure out a way to get all the emails out of there too. Anyone know how to set up a web archiver to enter a site like that? I have been trying with HTTrack and not making any progress

    I'm using Windows Live Mail (like a very updated and good version of OE) and it works very nicely, letting me keep all my hotmail and gmail messages offline.

    Finally took some time and did it the nitty gritty way. I downloaded Lynx (a text based browser) and set up a script for it to repeatedly save the email and hit the next button. It took about an hour to run to get all the email off, but it worked!

    Use pop-peeper

    Pop-peeper is great, free and works with any web mail account (hotmail, gmail, yahoo, aol...). There you will find an option to store your messages on your computer. The very cool part is that pop-peeper checks your e-mail accounts for you and notifies you when you get new mail.
