I've got about fifty emails in my Gmail inbox and want to forward them all in one go to my home account. Anyone know if this is possible? It'll be a real drag to do them all one-by-one!

Thanks.

Just had quick look maybe this is worth a try, setup an auto forward filter so when they come in they are forwarded to another account but other that I see no other way.

Maybe a email gmail support suggesting that this feature be included

Also, the last time i had a look at my gmail settings, i found one single tick box that said something along the lines of "check to download all emails (read unread) from gmail inbox via pop3). might pay to have a look for the setting once you log into your gmail account.
