Windows 7: How to redownload 1 month of gmails into my outlook.pst folder again?

How to redownload 1 month of gmails into my outlook.pst folder again?


My pc completely crashed. Repaired and re-installed most programs already.
But I am missing 1 month of mails in my outlook.pst folder:
My most recent .pst-backup is from dec15, the computer crashed on jan15.

The missing mails are still available online in my gmail folders.
What is the easiest way to 'resend' them to my mailbox in outlook?
I know I can do that one-by-one by forwarding them to myself, but that is for 140+ mails quite some work.
What is easier?

Thanks for helping!

So you use outlook mail client and get the gmail messages by using pop3/smtp?
Use imap method to get/send the mail. At least temporary. Now you can drag the messages from the "sent" folder and "inbox"... drop them in the local outlook folders.

Thanks, Kaktus, totally clear. Easy way to copy content from IMAP to PC-Outlook.
In fact only need it temporarily for '1 month mail copy' but will keep it for some time to see if it is useful.

Restore/Redownload Windows 7 Fonts?
Hi, I was deleting a lot of the unused fonts from my system (and "hiding" others) and found that I (naturally) deleted a few that I did NOT want to delete. But I didn't realize this until some months after my 'purge.' I know a system restore is an option, but for me it's too much for too little....

How do I search for a keyword or Name in Gmails?
Is there any way I can search my gmail texts for a Name or a keyword? I use numerous labels, but they only apply to Conversation strings on the whole, and I have many, some 17 or 20 long! Search with them first and you land up scouring hundreds of gmails, mine going back to 2011. Similarly...

Emails from over one month ago DISAPPEAR on Outlook 2010! Help please
Hello all, I'm hoping that you could help me with this, I'm not very computer literate but seem to muddle by well enough until now. I've recently bought a HP Pavilion and have installed Outlook 2010 and managed to figure it out as best I could, or so I thought. But I was looking for some...
