How to download all my emails from gmail account and save in my pc satyasundar 7/14/09 4:31 AM
My gmail account is full of emails and sent mails. About 69 per cent of the account is shown full. I want to save all my emails (sent and Received) in my computer. Kindly suggest me how to do this.

Google for 'Gmail Backup'.
Download it, install and set up your own backup.
BUT note: this is a pure Backup - it is not useable directly by Gmail.
If you want it useable, then you need to set up IMAP with M$'s Outlook and then you'll have all your mail on your local machine.

Gmail backup will work to a USB pen or other drive.
The only other way you could do what you seem to be asking is to use Offline - but I can tell you before you even go there that Offline *currently* won't do what you want! That's a restriction which is imposed by it being a Labs project.
However, I simply fail to understand  - if you don't want it backed up, what are you hoping to gain by carrying the data around with you? Gmail is a web application: all the data is stored on Google's servers and you access that same data wherever you log on (using the webmail interface). If you want to use it whilst NOT connected to the web, then Offline - or Outlook  - is your only option.

I know practically nothing about computers, I had someone send me pictures to my gmail and I want to put them into my pictures on my computer, I don't know how to do this, it seems there should be a relatively simple way to do it, Can anyone help me?

For the person asking about pictures...

Typically when there are attachments, the options to "view" or "download" are listed with the attachment.  That should allow you to download the pictures to your computer.

If that's not the case for you, then you may be able to right-click on the picture itself bringing up a menu and select "Save image as..." and save it to your computer that way.

I have very little access to a public computer that is connected to the internet, so it would be extremely useful if I could put all of my mail on a portable drive and look at it later on my computer which is not connected to the internet

I have the same question as suhailahmed.c -- isn't there a way to download all pictures in an e-mail at once? I have about 40 in one message that I'd like to save to my PC. They aren't attachments, so I see no View or Download options.

Also, when I try to download them individually, the Firefox Downloads box opens, but no image ever completes downloading. What's going on here?

This didn't exactly answer my question, but it was informative:

>>My attachment appears inline

Incompatibilities on the sender's side often cause attachments to appear inline. Please follow the steps below to determine if Gmail is causing the error.

If the attachment in your message is being displayed inline, check the message headers to determine whether this behavior was intended.

We suggest performing a search in your headers for the term 'Content-Disposition:'. (Tip: You can use your browser's 'Find' function by clicking 'Ctrl + F' on a PC or 'Command + F' on a Mac.) If the word 'inline' appears next to the 'Content-Disposition:' field, the sender's mail client or webmail provider intended to include the attachment as inline, and not downloadable.

For example:

Content-Disposition: inline; filename="Letter.txt"

If you wish to receive the attachment as a downloadable file, we suggest contacting the sender for further information.

If your message's 'Content-Disposition:' field does not say 'inline,' you can send the headers to the Gmail Team for further investigation.

(To see your e-mail headers, click the down-arrow next to "Reply" after opening the message; then click on "Show original".) In my case, I decided that the problem lay with the sender's incompatibilities, as I found no "Content-Disposition: inline" in the headers. I gave up and downloaded every image (46) individually. Took a long time, too.
