If you decide to abandon a GMail account (not just personal GMail, GSuite included), you might want to save a record of the past emails. Or maybe you simply want to backup your emails. How to do that? Google Takeout will do the work.

  1. Go to https://takeout.google.com/ and log in with your account
  2. Select the content you want to download. In my case, I deselect all except GMail. Then click the button “Next step”
