  • Move all my emails?

    I have loads of Emails on my gmail account and i need to move them to another email address, whats the best way?

    I cant highlight them all and forward them, is there a fast way?

    Leave them there and connect through POP/IMAP.

    Your query is actually too sketchy to answer properly.

    You need to provide more information to get a definitive answer.

    Email addresses are irrelevant. What software will you use to read the emails?

    You can't move your GMail to a new address, only to a new location.

    If you really do want to copy the whole shebang to your PC from Google, then IMAP or POP will get the lot.

    If you just want to get at new stuff, set up forwarding.

    If you want to retain everything in the same place. get GMail to retrieve from the new address with POP.

    Like I said, too little detail.

      Fair enough

      I use Outlook 2010 and my Andoid phone, however this is irrelevent as none of the clients have any of the emails i need

      I have a Gmail account and a Private hosted one from my work thats through exchange

      I want all the emails that are in my Inbox with google into my inbox with the other work email. So none of the emails are on a PC, and i dont want them on a PC

      I dont care about new ones, as both my phone and PC have them setup

        Where do you want them, if not on your PC ??

        If you just want a storage file containing all of them, I would use the imqp/pop method above to get them onto your PC, then create a .zip or .rar file to upload to your new storage area.

        Alternative, if you use Thunderbird, is to just make a copy of the email folder after you have downloaded all the emails from Gmail, and move them to a sd card. That way you can restore them to any copy of Thunderbird.

        After the Police stole my PC and back up HDD last year, I started making regular back-ups to micro sd cards and keeping them at work; I lost 16 years worth of emails and 20 years of email contacts.

          Are you sure that your company will allow this? Are you sure that you want them to be able to get at your GMail?

          If so, Exchange is really under their control. You need to work out how to get their Exchange server to retrieve messages from GMail.

          I don't know why you are averse to having a local copy. In your shoes I would use POP to create a local copy of the GMail in Outlook. The mail will sit there alongside your work email but kept apart.

          GMail has pretty clear instructions on how to set up Outlook to retrieve mail.

          Once you have a local copy of the old email, you might be able just to copy it into your Exchange account.

          I wouldn't know how to get the email into your Android. You probably know how to manage that already.

            You could forward the important ones and just setup forwarding or similar so that new ones arrive at that account.

              So I don't think that will achieve the desired effect.

              I should have asked about this before, but the size of the Gmail inbox may be important. With GMail space now running up to 8GB, retrieving that much could take time.

              It depends on how much of the email is in the Inbox, and if that is really all that Pancake wants to retrieve. I try to filter things into folders, but I still have a load of stuff in the inbox. But so far I am running at less that 2GB of space in GMail.

                If you make gmail forward everything in the inbox, change the labels of everything so they aren't in inbox and back again it might do it? :S

                  I can VNC the exchange server lol, i can do what i want. I have about 400mb of emails in gmail, and as much space as i want on the new email adress.

                  I dont want them on a local PC as i dont need them on a local PC. I just want to be able to see them if i need to

                  Both emails are already through outlook anyway

                    Sounds like you know everything anyway. No help needed.

                    Good luck with the transfer.
