- You can also use Google Takeout to back up your Gmail emails. Google Takeout is a service that allows you to download a copy of your data from Google, including your Gmail emails.
- If you only want to back up a specific email or a few emails, you can export them individually. You can also use a third-party backup solution for your Gmail emails. I suggest using the Shoviv Gmail backup tool that seamlessly backs up your desired email data into your desired email file format. Some of the email formats are PST, EML, MSG, MBOX, etc.
It is a good idea to back up your Gmail emails regularly, especially if you have important emails that you need to keep safe. Using the Shoviv Gmail backup tool you can also schedule your email backup for a specific time period, including daily backup, weekly backup, etc.
