Hello everyone, 

 
I have a couple of Gmail accounts, both for separate purposes, and they are filling up faster than ever. I need to backup all the emails currently present in these accounts so that I can have a clean Gmail account and also get the backup emails retrieve later when I want them to. What solution do I have?

Here's a backup tutorial

 

or

 

Buy more storage

 

or

 

Connect Gmail with an IMAP mail client,  sync the mail, remove the server details and delete online. You will then be able to access the mail on your machine. It's best to have backups in this situation.

There are several ways to backup a Gmail account and a number of tools to help you.  Personally, I prefer the free backup utility  https://github.com/jay0lee/got-your-back/wiki  which supports backup and restore of both Gmail and Google Apps account with full support for labels and the ability to be run as an automated scheduled task.  It stores the files on your local computer so they can be included in your normal computer backup.
 
The following article provides a lot more detail about doing backups and other tools that are available:  http://gmail-tips.blogspot.com/2012/01/gmail-backup.html
 
There are some paid solutions also like Mail backup x, be sure you test it;s trial version if you want to use it.

I think I am gona go with Mail Backup X. This software has got some unique features that no other application has. 

Thanks for the guidance.
