    you can use desktop email clients like thunderbird or mailspring.
    Add your gmail account to thunderbird and you can download the emails in a zip format.

    I think you have to install gmail offline before deleting, then you can save all the emails.

    sure you can. As far as I know you can create a backup copy on a gesture drive.

    Why would you want to back up your Gmail emails? Gmail is a trustworthy service and won't just randomly delete your email one day or decide that it's done for and cancel your account. However, you can still keep a backup of your Gmail messages just in case you want them offline.

    One of the easiest ways to save all your Gmail messages offline is to download them to an email client, but you can also save specific messages by dragging them out of your email program and into a different folder. Some other options include setting up a forwarding rule to send messages to a different email account or using an email backup service to back up emails online.
    Thanks for this post!
