I have downloaded this and finally got it set up and running, but haven't been able to get it to work successfully. I would love some help! I just get a 1 kb file exported, with no data, just the headings (name, e-mail).

Any suggestions?

I have no idea where to go next from here.

Under: 2) "Importing the certificate - run the following command"
You are referring to a file called "jre". There is no such file in the zip file. Could you please clarify what file you are talking about?

Thanks for trying my code. As for the JRE, it is not a file, it is Java Runtime Environment that every java program requires for execution. You can get it from I'm sorry it confused you, but this code does requires a little bit of knowledge about how to run java programs.

Tara, you can email me your problem in detail. I'll be glad to help you out. Send it to

Hey guys, I'm sorry to say that the g4j library this tool uses( seems to be failing to connect to gmail. It happens when gmail changes its internal stuff, but the library is not updated. So till the library changes, you won't be able to use this tool.

To solve the library incompatibility problem, use the g4j-lib.jar file from the 'GMail API for Java' SourceForge Project:
( Download and copy the g4j-lib.jar library to the GMail Exporter's 'lib' folder. That's it!

This tool is up and running, thanks to the author of the gmail library. I have updated this tool with the latest library, so just go ahead and download. Thanks to mdalal for pointing this out!
