It's interesting that a lot of people, including myself, don't trust things that they don't have with them and which they can't decide on all alone. Maybe this is typical of humans, an anthropological property.
Of course one gets x GB of space with any Gmail or Hotmail or Yahoo account, but those mails are stored god know where. When they are stored on my pen drive, I have them with me
Despite the large space available I still delete mails and try to keep my folders as empty and orderly as possible. When I still used Gmail I did not care about it and thought, well, I have those zillions of mails in my inbox and can search and reread them if I need to. But it turns out I never ever read any older mails again.
That and the fact that one cannot delete sent mails without deleting the entire threads made me switch from Gmail to MSN, where I have my good old-fashioned folders instead of labels, and individual mails instead of threads. Not to mention the trust issue with Google...

In addition to web access, Gmail supports POP3, IMAP, and ActiveSync access to your email, so that means you can use just about ANY email client to download email from your Gmail account.

The solution to this saving problem is in the down aarow button(gmail) next to the reply button in the email you want to save. Click the aarow, and it will reveal options. Click print. Two things will happen: first, you will see a new window pop up with just the message in it and second, you will have a print dialogue box appear. Cancel the print dialogue box, and you will have the window left with your email message in it. Maximize the window and the familiar "File" option will appear. Click file to reveal "Save", and choose the name, location, and most importantly, choose the file type as an .mht file. This will save everything in one place, as opposed to the .htm or .html file extension, which will save the file as a two part set that can get seperated. I hope you find this helpful.

There is a website called emailexporter.com where to you can export 25 emails at a time to a pdf and save to your computer which can then be transferred to a disk. You don't have to download any software and best of all it's free!
