I would like to store my gmail messages. A quick search leads me to believe it can be done but I'm not sure which software/process to use.


1. I use Gmail.

2. Windows 7-64 Pro

3. I've never used Outlook..don't even know if I have it (Do I get it from Windows Essentials?)





I did find this web page but couldn't decide which might work best.




I also found this on youtube. The second method might be what I'm looking for but not sure about prior messages being downloaded.

OK. I found the info on youtube.


I decided to use Mozilla's Thunderbird.


Pretty simple process to set-up.
