    I am leaving an abusive situation, and I want to take my Gmail account (with all the labels, etc.) and my G-chats with me. Ideally, I'd like to be able to recreate my current Gmail account with a new address, separate from the one I share with my abusive partner. How can I go about taking all that Gmail data (emails, chats, etc.) and using it to make a new email account? I know about Google Takeout, but I've read a few places that it isn't helpful for restoring an account elsewhere. I'm not as interested in the other data (e.g., contacts, Drive docs, calendar info, etc.)---just all the emails (preferably with labels / organization intact) and the chat logs.

    I'm using a Mac, running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. Thank you so much for your help!
