Transfer Gmail to Google Apps Gmail
July 7, 2007 4:34 PM   Subscribe

I have an account and I've recently set up a Google Apps for Domain account so that I am in the possession of address hosted at Google. I'd like to get my ~17,000 messages migrated to the other account. Has anyone done this before?

I've heard that there is a work around with using POP but it doesn't preserve conversation threading, labels, unread marks, stars, etc. Anyone have any experience with gxFER from Nolimit? Does it work? Does it do a high fidelity copy or move?

I haven't done this myself, but I saw this just yesterday that might be helpful (scroll down a few screens to the section titled "Transferring Mail into Gmail for Apps from *another Gmail account*"). No idea if it preserves threading etc.

I do not know the answer, but you might try this group as a resource. They have been helpful to me in the past.

Response by poster: thanks harkin banks, i came across that as well and that describes the POP technique.

Thanks JohnnyGunn, I'll check that out.

The site mentioned by harkin banks also links to this which lists a free gXFER: Google account transfer that seems to do what you want.

Oops, I didn't see you'd already found that.

The Resource Manual for gXFER describes it as using Gmail's mail fetcher program which sounds like it just configures the POP downloading for you.

This may or may not help you.
