The window will show you multiple options to select, so tap
on the empty box next to “Enable IMAP”. Now scroll down
and click on “Save Changes”, and you’re all set to go ahead
and configure the SMS Backup+ app.

The app which allows you to back up SMS to Gmail account
is called SMS Backup+, and is available on the Google Play
Store for free. Simply search for the app.
Once the app is downloaded, open it and tap on the
“Connect” button to add your Gmail account to the app. A
pop-up window will show you the Gmail account (or
accounts) connected to your Android device, so tap on the
one you want to back up your SMS to.
After offering the “Allow” permission to the app from your Gmail account, you will have to confirm backing up the stored
messages on your device by pressing “Backup”. You have
now successfully backed up your SMS to your Gmail account.
