Save Gmail Attachments to Google Drive Step 2 Enter the names of one or more Gmail Labels in cell D4. The script will monitor Gmail messages under these label and any attachments included in these message will get saved to your Google Drive. If you wish to save attachments from all Gmail messages, irrespective of the label name, just put all in cell D4. You can multiple labels separated by a comma. For instance, if you wish to extract mails from labels Inbox, Sent Items and the Starred items in Gmail, put inbox, starred, sent in the cell.
