How do change an IMAP account to POP?
posted by Brandon Blatcher to computers & internet (4 answers total)
Moving to a new mail server, which doesn't support IMAP yet. Natually I have several IMAP accounts, which I'd like to continue using.
So is there a way to do this? Thunderbird 1.5 is the main mail app for these accounts, both windows and mac versions. I found several solutions for converting POP to IMAP (in thunderbird), which involved dragging and dropping folders, but nothing specifically for IMAP to POP. Do you think downloading all the mail from the IMAP account and draggin to a new account would work? Are there any other suggestions for doing this? I have access to Mac and PCs, though only up to 10.3.9 on the mac, latest XP install on the PC.
