Transfer Move Email Contents (IMAP)

The following is a step-by-step explanation on how to simply move email contents (IMAP) from one email account to another (IMAP). Depending on the email programme you’re using, these procedures may differ.

  • If your domain has not yet propagated to the new account, you can use your domain name to set up your old account and your domain name to set up your new account.
  • Although this procedure is simple, it can take a long time to complete, especially if you have a large number of emails. Allow adequate time for all emails to be copied to the new server.

Let’s get started! Please follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1 of 5

Install an IMAP-compatible email client on your computer. We’ll be using Thunderbird for this course. Any current email client, on the other hand, will work.

Step of 5

Connect the client to your Transfer Move Email Contents server (IMAP).

Step 3 of 5

You will wish to “subscribe” to this email account once it has been set up and your “Inbox” has been downloaded. When you subscribe to an email account, you’ll get all of the subfolders you’ve made for that account as well.

Step of 5

Using the same email client, set up another IMAP email account to connect to your new provider, following the same steps as before.

Step of 5

By selecting all emails in the Inbox folder and dragging them to the new account, you can copy all of your emails from your old to your new email account. Repeat the process for each subdirectory. Copying, as previously said, can take some time. If time is an issue, do this step by step until all of your mail has been migrated. After you’ve completed all of the processes, you can delete the old email account from your email client.
