    Hey Guys..

    This post is awesome.. the only thing is that u dnt even need to buy or download gmailkeeper.. The IMAP works perfectly with the thunderbird itself. Just turn on the IMAP feature as told hereinabove, and allow the chats label to be shown in the imap folders. then in thunderbird, just select the chat messages u want to save, right click, select export, select the folder, n ok.

    u will have all the chat sessions neatly stacked up in emails.

    awesome. thanks google. thanks everyone.
