I've not tried but I would of thought it would just be as easy as set your gmail up as imap in your outlook client and then just move the emails over between the folders.

Answer:Can I import my old gmail emails to

If you move everything to the inbox, and choose to retrieve all in the pop settings it will retrieve all of it. Then setup your outlook like you want it

I was just thinking, use windows live mail, set up IMAP and add your gmail account. Then you can move all the email to your live email, and it will show in too

OK...Running Vista Home Basic on my Dell PC...5 days ago at 9:23pm I received my last email in Outlook (2007). Computer was idle at work. No problems for 4 years until now. 2 weeks ago went with a new ISP and did not change the codes for SMTP/Pop3/Imap because it was all working the exact same way--frankly, didn't think about it. Come in and there are no new emails. Hit Send/Receive and nothing happens. NO WAY, I get 50 a day. Go to Gmail account and it stopped at the same time. Find all new messages in Trash folder then all filters were removed to see what happened next. Emails were visible on screen (inbox) after that-and still are. After that, gmail icon started showing bottom right of my screen with my incoming emails--FROM 2009/10/11! All I had deleted last year and I am sure I emtied. My Outlook number of items in Inbox continues to grow every time I hit Send/Receive, lines "bounce" on screen as if items are going to appear but they don't. I get the outlook envelope showing emails from January to March 2012 downloading along with New Items in Mailbox icon as of today. I can hit on the email as it (icon) pops up and read it but if it passes it is totally GONE! Since gmail was fixed, about 7000 emails have gone into my inbox but not one of them are visible.

Answer:2007 Outlook/Gmail Account --Where are my emails going??

Any chance your old ISP was Rogers?

I thought that when you use POP , your email address is hosted and stored by the ISP.
Meaning, say your ISP was called Teleweb, your email address would have been [email protected].

I'm confused as to why you did not need to change the POP settings if you changed ISPs.

Im thinking your old ISP cancelled or disabled your email account, which may be contributing to the problem.

Also Gmail is webmail, so ISPs cannot influence how Gmail behaves. Were you forwarding your mail to the gmail account?

I've been using outlook 2007 to send and recieve emails for the past 3 years or so (recieving from my website's pop server, and sending through gmail --- my website's domain has been flagged for spamming). Last week, I started getting this error message as I noticed that emails aren't being sent:

"none of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server"

I've tried double checking my login info, server settings, firewall, and even tried sending emails over a different network (work, home, starbucks..etc). I also changed the port number and security type as advised by gmail's troubleshooting...

Anyone have a hint for me???

I have been trying to follow this guide to get my local emails uploaded onto Gmail:

Unfortunately it seems that this guide is for Outlook users, and I use thunderbird. Does anybody know of a way to import local emails from Thunderbird to Gmail?

I've heard of the "Gmail Loader" program, but AFAIK this program will strip the emails of their original send dates. What I'd really like is for a solution where all my local messages can be sent and stored on Gmail, with the original sender information retained, and the original send dates retained. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Import thunderbird emails to Gmail

Here are the instructions from gmail to enable IMAP in thunderbird ->

Just attach to GMAIL via IMAP and the drag and drop you saved local email to GMAIL through thunderbird.

Make sure you enable IMAP in your GMAIL settings under Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

The question really says all about what I want to do, or need help on. I recently signed up for a new outlook account to try out the new outlook preview and I've set up gmail to automatically forward new messages to my outlook account so that I can use outlook to manage my gmail account.

Do any of you know how I would be able to forward the old messages, and not the new ones, to my outlook? I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

Answer:how to import emails to outlook express 2006

Unfortuantely, this option isn't inherent to OE. In order to import into OE, you need to select another email program to import from. So, if you want to import your sent items, from Outlook, you'd need to export the Sent items to a pst file, then install Outlook on the second computer, then running the Import Wizard in IE to import the messages.I haven't worked with Vista, but if you could install and configure OE on machine number 1, you could run the export/import, then copy the sent items,dbx file from computer 1 to computer 2.If you own both computers, why not just install Outlook on machine 2?

Answer:outlook 2007 import data from 2003 version?

You can use Import/Export Function in Outlook to import all your old emails and contacts. Yes importing function can mess up the already existed data if an orphan PST file possesses some of duplicate items. To deal with it, deploy the filter available in the Outlook import function like Remove duplicate entries, etc. Its just about how and what data you are going to move.

One possible solution is that I could migrate their emails via my Google Apps for Business account though I imagine it would take forever to then forward these emails onto them (most likely manually using the Forward) option?

Is there a way to do this?

I use Outlook 2010 which syncs to my IMAP Gmail account.
This works very well.

Today something happening in Outlook (I might have dragged something, I don't know) and my mails (12,500 of them) ended up in Outlook's deleted items folder. Some Gmail folders just vanished, like Sent Items, Bin and Spam.

I immediately quit Oulook before it synced so all my mails are still safe on Gmail's servers. I checked via logging in to the Gmail website and also disabled IMAP to be safe.

I need some advice on how to fix the emails in Outlook.
I'm afraid that if I start syncing the mails will be lost from Gmail.
I also don't want to start a new Outlook .pst file as there are many gigs of emails to sync.

Does anyone have some advice?

Answer:deleting emails in outlook, not connecting with gmail

Depending on how you're connecting to gmail it may not be possible. I know it's not possible to delete emails on the web server if you're using an HTTP or IMAP connection. By default, most tutorials tell you to use IMAP and POP isn't enabled be default on a gmail account.

To Enable Pop in Gmail:

1. Sign in to Gmail.
2. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
3. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
4. Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
5. Choose what to do with your messages after they're accessed with your POP client or device.
6. Configure your POP client* and click Save Changes.

To Configure Outlook 2007 to connect via POP:

1. Enable POP in your email account. Don't forget to click Save Changes.
2. Open Outlook.
3. Click the Tools menu, and select Account Settings...
4. On the E-mail tab, click New...
5. If you are prompted to Choose E-mail Service, Select POP and then select Next.
6. Fill in all necessary fields to include the following information:
7. Click Next... You're Done. (Manual Cofiguration)

I have had terrible trouble with my gmail acct for about 2 or 3 years and have decided to say a fond farewell, but first I synced with Outlook2007 and imported my archived files. My gmail files read 24,432 files, but only about 8701 end up in Outlook during an import.

I have too many files to save one by one, but many are acct related and imperative: it involves my writing, royalties, websites, business and hosting accts ,personal letters, and stats from the years 2005 till now. I once before a few years ago took the better part of a day and was able to download the files into outlook and save them.

Is there anyway to get my files backed up in full outside of a mail client? The problem I have been having looks like more than one person has been accessing my account and I can not be sure of Google's complicity or ignorance of the matter.

Answer:For those who use GMail/Outlook 2007.

Can't say about personal folders, but you can have Outlook chose your Gmail to be your primary email by going in your control panel, then Mail, then Show Profiles. Use the drop menu to select your Gmail profile and then select "Always use this profile".

Be sure you have Outlook turned off before you do this.

Answer:Outlook 2007 and Gmail

Did it set up GMail as a POP account or as an IMAP account?

If it set up as a POP< there is part of the problem. If it set it up as an IMAP, then you'll need to dig into your settings and see why it is not showing everything in your GMail account. You may also need to adjust your settings in your GMail account itself in order for it to do the mail correctly.

For example, last year I converted my default GMail account which I checked using POP through Thunderbird into a true online account, complete with folder *online*, rules / filtering *online* and mail *online* which I now check through Thunderbird, my Motorola DROID, and anywhere else through a web browser *online*. There was a specific routine I had to go through to set every thing up, and most of it you will not need (at least not now if you don't do server side filtering and use server-side 'folders'), but the setting up of IMAP settings in your account settings online is probably what will fix this particular issue you're having.

Post back and let me know if you need more help, I'll try to dig up the links I used (straight from Google, so you know they're not bogus) and post them back here.

In the pop download column go to option 2 and in the drop down box select delete gmails copy
Then select save changes.

I use OE 6 on my desktop running XP pro, but use Outlook 2007 on my laptop running XP home. I cannot receive attachments sent from my Outlook 2007 to my OE 6 when I send it to myself. They are stripped off, not even showing an attachment. The attachment comes through to other recipients as far as I know, INCLUDING my alternate email address (through at&t). So OE 6 receives the attachment when I send it from my default email account to my at&t account, but not when I send it to from and to my default account. I have checked with my email provider, who has checked the server (IMAP) and they do not see any problem--the attachment is on the server. I have already unchecked all potential blocks under the Security Tab--image blocking and attachment blocking--and am operating in the Internet Zone. And, as far as I know, I am receiving attachments from everyone else in the world. I know there are ways to work around this problem, but it is irritating and I have concerns that my email attachments to clients may be unknowingly blocked. Also, I cannot receive those attachments on my Blackberry either.

I see they have different ports. They use 993 and i use 995 and for smtp they have 587 when i use 465. They should work with those settings as those are alternative ports that can be used with Gmail and the download of emails. But i use 995 and 465 with no issues.

Hi, I did a test to see if I could restore emails to a gmail account via IMAP if they were backed up in outlook and the gmail account was empty. When I backed up the emails in outlook, I did so by syncing my gmail account with the '[Gmail]/All mail folder' in outlook (including email bodies and attachments). I next deleted all the emails in my gmail account. This subsequently led to the deletion of emails in outlook as you would expect. Finally I copied backups of all emails I made from the Outlook [Gmail]/All mail folder back to that folder

What happens next is that the emails sync back to gmail from outlook but they go back to the 'all mail' folder in gmail. Inbox and sent items remain empty. Is there any way to fix it so that inbox and sent items are repopulated in gmail? Thanks
