Horcrux Email Backup
Mac OS Utilities
Horcrux lets you automatically backup your mails from any IMAP supported email accounts with great ease. The best part is, you have an option to restore the backed up emails to any other email account, retaining all your tags/folder hierarchy.
"Horcrux is handy since you don't actually have to think about it when it's running" - Lifehacker
Note: This is a background app, it resides on the Mac menu bar called "H". Click on that to get back to the preferences.
Disclaimer: Gmail/Google Apps seems to be blocking apps that use IMAP authentication. For now, you can allow less secure apps to get it working. https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255
