Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to export out emails from Gmail to an Outlook PST file and it seems slow using this method—Outlook and IMAP/POP3 are kinda slow on archiving.

Is there any other method than going through POP3 or IMAP?

POP3 is not possible because, I think, it doesn't sync labels.

The only other thing is to setup Outlook to only sync specific labels (with IMAP).

Possibly another mail client (like Thunderbird or Evolution) would perform better?

Use Gmail Takeout:

This will leave you with an mbox file. Use Aid4Mail to convert that to a .PST:
