importing old mails from gmail

i like emclient so far…but…how to access all the emails that i have archived at gmail in the cloud and get them onto my hard drive? i have tried moving all my gmail archive into the inbox at gmail, and some have been imported into emclient. i have even marked the mails as ‘unread’ in gmail. still no dice. any ideas anyone?


Try IMAP instead of POP3.
