Dear Friends,
I am trying to transfer my e-mail (Gmail) to my hard drive. I have to take my laptop somewhere where there is no internet access at all, so I wouldn't be able to get to my e-mails (I need to be able to access my emails to document some events). I know I can just open up everyone of them and copy and paste each one to word documents, but is there some steps to simplify the process. Thanks for any ideas you have!
Thankful

Hi thankful

You can setup Gmail in an e-mail client and have the e-mail client download the e-mails to your hard drive.
Copying and pasting would not be necessary.


Login to your Gmail account and click on the Settings link at the top right of the page.
Then click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
There you can enable POP access to Gmail.

Let us know what operating system you are using and we can determine what e-mail client you may already have available.

Sorry I took so long to reply. I tried the steps you recommended and everything worked! Gmail guided me into setting up Outlook and all my gmail downloaded to it. Thanks so much!
Thankful.
