After problems with Outlook, I am wondering if there is a way to scrape my email from Gmail?  There are 1000's of files.

The easiest way I can think of doing this is by configuring POP to download all email and downloading it all to  an email client like ThunderBird (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/). Then from there you can export this data out into various format.

OK,  I am trying Thunderbird, but don't see how I can save emails in a different format.  Can you give me a hint?

First you would set it up as a regular pop account; as if you were going to use thunderbird as your email client.

Then you would export the data into a format.

** I dont have thunderbird installed on my macbook but I've had to do this in the past on a windows pc

for the following reason:

The programmer with the vb.net app was able to get the job done.  I must say, the vb.net is really slow compared to using Outlook and VBA, but it works.

I had a custom VB.NET application built.  It works, but it is slow.  Went back to using the Outlook solution.
