Export Gmail mail to doc

Very recently, one of my office colleague posted a query in Facebook that how to export or get Gmail mail to a document. So, i thought it will be better if i post the method/ steps to export. Actually, i read this in a blog a big long time back, but unfortunately, i don’t remember the site/ link for back linking.
This post i’ve inserted images for easier understanding.

Let’s go,

Step 1

To save the email to your local computer, you could use the ‘File’, ‘Download As’ to Microsoft 97-2003 Word document (*.Doc) or OpenDocument Format (*.Odt) or Rich Text Format (*.Rtf) or PDF Document (*.Pdf) or Plain Text Document (*.Txt) or even in Zip format. Choose your format and enjoy!

Hope this helps you to export mails Gmail account.
