I have labelled a few hunderd emails in my Gmail. I would like to connect to my Gmail from Outlook and move all the labelled emails to a .pst file. How do I do it?

IMHO, the easiest way is to use the IMAP functionality of Gmail.

  1. Enable IMAP on Gmail
  2. Configure Outlook on your computer to handle your Gmail account (see Google Help)
  3. Sync your mailboxes. Gmail will create a folder for each label
  4. Create a new Outlook PST
  5. Move (or Copy) all the mails you want (from the folder of the wanted label) to your .PST
