Frequently Asked Question
Why does the account scan fail despite of repeated trials? I cannot filter EML files while using Search feature in the tool. Why?
Every time I try to download emails from the suspect's Gmail account, scanning fails. Why is this happening and how can this be resolved?

This could be happening due to account access 'disabled' for Third Party Apps by Google as part of its additional (default) security measure.

To enable the access:

  • Login to the respective account on browser
  • Open email notification received from Google
  • Enable access for Third Party Apps following the second link provided in the mail.
Is it possible to perform the forensic examination of multiple Gmail accounts?
I can only provide the account credentials of one Gmail profile at a time. Is there a possibility to examine multiple accounts at a time then?

Yes, multiple Gmail profiles can be analyzed & examined at once. However, note that you may have to scan each account one by one, though the examination all accounts can be done at once.

How can I examine only a particular set of emails from a bulk collection?
The account to be examined has a bulk collection of emails which might consume a lot of time during scan. How can I download the emails received in the last two months and skip the rest?

You can apply Date Filter before starting the scan procedure and download emails of the required date range only. Provide the "From" & "To" set of dates according to the requirement and proceed.
