Hi, moved this from Win10 to Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications

So others in the know can see.

Look at this

How are you trying to download these?  (As in, what e-mail client are you using and what access method (IMAP/POP3)?)

 

Do you have any issue accessing your Gmail via gmail.com?

 

When you log in to the Google Gmail web interface, is it actually showing that you have 52K messages?

Your issue most likely lies in the fact that you are trying to use POP3 access on a collection of messages far in excess of what most clients will download at one time and most servers will allow to be downloaded at one time.

 

Go in to your Gmail settings via the web interface and make sure that IMAP access is enabled.  Then try using IMAP rather than POP3.   IMAP will only download the message headers for all but the most recent messages and can get the message bodies if/when you ever access those messages again.

 

You should also seriously consider cleaning up your inbox.  52K messages are more than any one person is going to access effectively.  Even if you go through via the web interface an archive those that you don't want to actually delete, but would very seldom ever refer to, that will cut down on what gets downloaded, too, while the messages are still there for web-based access.

Then try using IMAP access.   I can almost guarantee you that using POP3 access on an archive this huge is at the root of your problem.

 

Since IMAP will not download message bodies, except on demand, for other than recent messages the demand on the IMAP server, and your e-mail client, are greatly reduced in terms of throughput.

 

POP3 has been in the process of effectively being deprecated for some years now, as its default behaviors make accessing the same e-mail messages across multiple devices a nightmare.  IMAP cures that, as well as, for all practical intents and purposes, keeping your messages backed up on the e-mail provider's server.  They're likely to have far more stringent backup practices than most home users ever do, even if they're good about backing up.   IMAP also has the added advantage of there being nothing to do but set up your existing account on a new computer when you get one and, voila!, everything's there for you to access as needed.
