A friend uses gmail with her own domain. All her emails are stored with gmail.
However, she's not too satisfied with gmail. Should we decide to let her to move back to a dedicated client or another webmail app hosted on her domain, is there a way to move the actual email data (contacts, folders, emails, etc. etc.) out from gmail and into the new system?
I am a developer, so I am not afraid to have to code something ad-hoc for the transfer.
My question is twofold:
- Is there a way to export all the raw data held by gmail?
- Is it easy to do or do tools already exist to move away from gmail, or I'll have to code things for myself?
P.S. I hope this is the best stack* web site to post this. They are getting so numerous that sometimes it's getting difficult to know where to post each question. However, gmail is a webapp, and the likely destination after the migration away from gmail would be a new integrated web app I am currently working on.
