Retrieve Gmail emails that were left on server by outlook.

We have an email system that routes emails to various entities based on the subject.  The account is gmail. We periodically delete emails from the outlook client, but "do not delete emails from server" was selected. We can see them if we log on to gmail via a browser. how do we get those emails back onto the outlook client?  We need to export to CSV and run analytics on how many things went where and when.  There are 13,000 emails so manual isn't an option.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Are you using POP3 to access Gmail?

If so, you could swap to IMAP - that way the emails will be synchronised between the client and server, and deleted from the server when deleted from the client.

If you want to keep a 'backup copy' have the Gmail account copy all incoming emails to another (Gmail or elsewhere) account, and archive / delete that periodicially as required.
