I’ve been using Gmail from the day it appeared. Naturally, over the years, some of my work email related to several projects wound up on my private email, which I’m referring to here.
I’ve tagged all emails relating to specific projects with a project nametag, for 40 or so projects.
I would like to download those emails offline using Outlook, Outlook Express or Thunderbird, but in such a way that they retain some relationship to the nametag. Perhaps I could download all emails under a certain nametag in one folder, then another nametag in another folder, and so on. The important thing to me is that they don’t get all mixed up, but that I can separate them according to project.
There are about 50-100 mails per project with various attachments, which I would like to keep with the emails.
Could anyone advise me what would be a good way to go about this, and maybe offer their experiences if they were in a similar situation? I imagine it is not an unusual situation, and so am hoping somebody must’ve had a similar problem before.
