I am having a Gmail account and this account is configured with window service.This window service read mails with attachments from inbox and send update back to user after particular interval.

Problem :

Now account space is almost full i want to take backup of all these files on another on-line storage. I am not able to upgrade my account.

  • Can you just delete old emails that you do not need? That would save a lot of hassle.
