Moving Email Between Webservices


Over the last months I kept moving between web mail services.

First I was with Gmail but started to be less and less happy with their service so I moved to the new Yahoo mail witch was great for a bit but started to get buggier with the day so I moved again.

This of course brings some challenges first you email address changes witch for me is not a big problem as I use an email addresses with my own domain that I forward to the service of choice so by changing the forward I am good to go at the new service.

But how do I get the old email that I want?

So there are some options.

You can forward the old email one by one to your new mail provider and this is a lot of work and not very handy as now it gets to become new mail with new date and as unread.

You can of course start to pull in through pop or things like that if they allow you to do that but that is again a hassle to setup and just for one time use.

But now I by accident I found a much easier way.

After setting up my new mail provider on my iPad I went to my Yahoo folder and selected some mail and then moved it to another folder witch I didn’t really realized was at my new mail provider and it worked.

As simple as that you can just select emails from one mail account on your iPad (or iPhone) and move it to another.
The original date stamp and read states stays to.

It’s super easy as now you only copy the mail you want on your new clean mail account.

I love it 🙂 go try it out it is super easy.
