Why don't you get the form on the website to post the data you want to a database before it sends on the email to you?

It would be one thing of the email was from the person, but it sounds as if your form is sending you an email with POST info. The only thing I could think to pull that data out of a gmail account would be by hand. If you loaded the imap info into an easy to use email software, you could get the job done in a fairly short amount of time. In the future I'd suggest something like what blacknight said, have the email and any other pertinent data get posted to a DB before or while getting sent to your email account, or just use an opt-in form from your email marketing provider (aweber/getresponse/etc)

I have done this with Outlook.
Download emails to outlook.
Filter the emails you want into their own folder.
EXPORT folder to csv file.

You now have all your mails in a handy excel file where you can do a find and raplace to strip away everything but the emails you want.
