Moving messages manually using IMAP

To transfer messages from your Google@SAS account into a personal account, you will need to configure both accounts as IMAP in a mail client, such as Outlook. After you have configured them, you will be able to drag and drop messages between the accounts to move your messages. To configure your Google@SAS account as IMAP in Outlook you can follow the instructions found here.

If you are transferring messages to another Gmail account you can use the same instructions for your personal Gmail account.

You can also export and download your data from the Google products you use, like your email, calendar, and photos using Google Takeout. In a few easy steps, create an archive to keep for your records or use the data in another service. Instructions for using Google Takeout can be found here.
