Here is a very simple method to save your Gmail messages as PDF file or Word document using Gmail’s built-in experimental feature. Here's how to configure your Gmail to save messages as PDF or other file format.

 Log in to your Gmail account and click the configuration option (gear-shaped icon near the top right) and then select ‘Settings’ option.

Now click the ‘Labs’ tab and scroll down to see the experimental feature ‘Create a Document‘and Enable it (see screenshot above).Then save the changes by clicking ‘Save Changes’ button.

 The next time you want to save a message as a PDF file or Word document, just click the ‘More’ option and select ‘Create a document’.

It’ll open a new tab in Google Docs. From here, you can easily edit, save, and download your message as a PDF file or some other file format. [via-techtrickz]
