I have some messages that I'd like to import to Gmail. The messages were never emails but are conversations from another service. Right now I have them in a .csv file with columns From,To,Date,Message

I would like the messages as emails in Gmail, for backup and so I can search them easily.

How can I import them into Gmail?

What format does it accept for upload?

    Perhaps it will be necessary to import the messages into an email client such as Thunderbird, then upload them to Gmail using IMAP. – Colonel Panic Aug 4 '15 at 16:32
  • That's one alternative. I think that you could have problems with the date due to the way that it's handled by Gmail. I think that it's taken from the message headers. – Rubén Aug 4 '15 at 17:53
  • What about uploading them to Google Drive? – MrWhite Aug 4 '15 at 21:44
