How To Download All Email Attachments In Gmail

In Gmail, the email body might include images, tables, animations, and other elements that enhance the email’s size. The sender sends the emails with attachment(s) to make the emails lighter. The attachment might be a single file or a collection of files. A zipped file can also be supplied as an attachment to enclose the files.

Photos, documents, PPTs, spreadsheets, audio files, videos, programs, and other forms of items can all be attached to emails. My colleague told us last month that he needed to use the Gmail application to retrieve all of the attachments from various emails. “I’ve been receiving online receipts from our Internet Service Provider for 5 years” he explained. I need receipts dating back at least two years to check for changes in the billing trend. Perhaps I’ll have to manually inspect each email’s attachment and download it”.

When you need attachments from a large number of emails, you should consider the following options and pick the best one. When backing up Gmail emails to computer, you can use these ways as well.

How To Download all Gmail content using Google Takeout

Google Takeout is a Google URL-based service that downloads specified programs as a zip file. You can use this method to store all of your Gmail data. It will save messages together with their attachments.

1. Open your browser, go to the URL and then log in with your Gmail account.

2. Select the Mail option, and all messages and attachments will be saved in MBOX format. To choose it, use the checkbox.

3. Untick all the remaining Google apps and then click Next Step.

4. To save the specified data, choose a frequency. Choose the file size and type for the final product. Select Create export from the drop-down menu.

5. The export file is being created by Google. Wait until the file to download appears.

You can extract the data from the zip file, and an MBOX file will be created. It can be opened in any program that supports the MBOX file format.
