This article from Wired provided some good suggestions for backing up GMail:

  1. Mozilla Thunderbird – set up POP or IMAP and open the app once in a while.
  2. Getmail – available in the Ubuntu repositories, easy to configure, and can be run via cron.
  3. Fetchmail – reportedly ‘arcane’ and more difficult to set up, but also run on the command line.
