Export Gmail messages to message or HTML documents
I intend to have the ability to export Gmail messages as message or HTML documents to make sure that they can be saved, circulated, and also conveniently watched later on.
I would actually such as to be able to situate an option of my messages (as an example, by tag, by sender, and so on) and also export them simultaneously.
Exists a means to do this?
The key is configuring your account to be obtainable using IMAP.
Although a fast G search discloses lots of tools/scripts/services to do backup of IMAP web servers and also specifically of GMail.
I are just one of the writers of BackupGoo. We additionally intended to have a safe and secure offline duplicate of our information. BackupGoo is actually straightforward to make use of and also back-ups all your things from Google to your neighborhood harddrive in extensively - made use of layouts. This consists of as an example GMail, Google Docs, Google Reader. GMail as an example is conserved as simple message "Mime - Message" that can be watched in any kind of full-screen editor or offline e-mail customer.
I have actually had success making use of IMAP Tools to backup various other (non - Gmail) IMAP accounts. I made use of both
imapdump.pl and also
IMAPToMbox.pl ; they create one text documents per e-mail or one text documents per folder, specifically. Both commands permit defining which IMAP folders (Gmail's tags) you intend to support.
This method matches me well, 'cause I can backup my account instantly (claim, a cron work) without my treatment.
In Google Labs enable create a record, after that return to the string you intend to export as a record and also click 'create a record'.
after that in Google records you can conserve the resulting record as HTML (whized) or your can download it as simple message among a variety of various other layouts.
I access Gmail with a mail customer which shops email in the maildir layout. Maildir merely shops each e-mail in its initial RFC822 message layout in a different documents. These are legible message documents, although modern-day e-mail is usually littered with base64 inscribed mail add-ons.
There are numerous gnu/linux e-mail customers which sustain maildir, consisting of Evolution which is the typical mail customer in the Ubuntu circulation. Nonetheless, there are no Windows e-mail customers sustaining maildir that I recognize of.
The most convenient means might be to make use of a neighborhood POP customer like Outlook to download them. After that you can conveniently export or conserve them to message.
For a specific e-mail, you can make use of Print to publish the materials to a documents on your equipment ... yet that would certainly get excruciating promptly for greater than a couple of e-mails.
