Recently I was cleaning out my GMail mailbox. Yes, yes I know they give you lots of space and you can even buy more if you need it, but I kind of wanted to leave fewer old emails hanging around. I don’t know, we’ll call it “spring cleaning”. Though not all old emails are useless, some of them I actually wanted to keep and archive offline. For the most part things went smoothly, I made good use of Google Takeout service by downloading labeled emails as sepparate chunks.
