i've a gMail Google account with 1000 MB (one giga) and i would like use it as an archive for several hundreds, even thousands of old received e-mails and reduce the Outlook size.

i can select several e-mails in Outlook and send as attachment but then gMail doesn't have the list/search function.
i would like sends the selected group of e-mails one-to-one as if these e-mails where originally sended to the gMail account.
maybe ideal if each e-mail is auto deleted in outlook.

btw my version is Outlook in Office 2003 in WinXP.

Well if you are sending all emails as attachments then what gmail search can is to search for that specific email (giving the name of the attachment in the search box) that is sent from outlook and not all emails inside it

The only way I can think of is forwarding all emails from oultook automatically using a rule and then remove emails from outlook if you want to reduce the size of outlook

Keep in mind gmail is just one GB compared to the entire hard disk space available for outlook. It would not be easy even if you think of using those emails from a different machine , you got to first extract the attachment  in your gmail and then read all the emails which is not really worth

this because i want to send the mails ono to one, not as attachments.

believe me, 1 GB is a lot of space. for instance you can move not very important mails, these received for lists and others and use the good search function in gmail when you need.

i've noted bad performace in the pc when the .pst outlook file are so big as 2 GB. also backup of .pst big files are a pain.

a rule is not a easy way to go because i like select emails in an free way. mybe better is moving the mails to an "gmail" folder, later select all mails in gmail folder, resend (but maintain original sender info??) to gmail account and then delete all mails in gmail folder?

i'm looking for an more easy way, if any.

OK .. I didnot know you are planning to send selected emails to gmail ..
Well sending all the emails as one attachment  is not a good idea as you can imagine

doing gmail folder (well you can put whatever email you want in this folder to be sent to gmail_) and then using rule to sent to gmail account is the easiest way and possibly the only best way

yes the only way is:

1.- create folder GMail
2.- select emails (manually or using rules) and move to the folder
3.- using a rule resend all the emails in gmail to the gmail account address

the emails are sended one to one, but Outlook change the sender, then the only problem is the emails in google lack the sender. i don't see any way to solve it.

Thanks.
