Google has announced that, starting now, you can download all of your Gmail email, and also your calendar data. The Gmail download will put your messages in “mbox” format (a standard email format which most email programs can use, or at least from which they can import).

Explains Google, “Having access to your data and being able to take it with you is important, especially if that data contains precious memories like old love letters, your first job offer, or that 100-message thread discussing the merits of various cat videos. Starting today we’re rolling out the ability to export a copy of your Gmail and Google Calendar data, making it easy to back up your data or move to another service.”

Google goes on to explain that you can download everything, or you can pick and choose particular labels in Gmail. The same is true for downloading your calendar data – download all of your Google calendars, or only certain ones.

You can download your calendars effective immediately but, says Google, they will be rolling out the ability for Gmail download over the next month.
