      One of the deficiencies of gmail has been that it's very painful to put all your old emails into it. I'm thinking maybe imap will fix this. I happen to be one of the lucky ones who got imap, so I'll keep you posted.

            There's an option in the settings to pull email from up to 5 (?) sources on the GMail page. There are several settings that allow you to optionally move or copy the emails. I did the move option, so I could check if any mail didn't make it across.

            On the whole it worked great, EXCEPT that the date of the mail got messed up, it took the entire day, and the order was a bit strange. I ended up having to sort by date sent rather than date received. It was also a big pain in the ass to get random mail from my old account throughout the day.

            On the other hand, once it was finished, I had stored 5 years of emails from my school account. There's still a few emails that never made the transfer, and I'm not completely sure why yet.

            You'll need Outlook. Any version will do I think, other email clients might work though in my experience Outlook Express doesn't work and neither does the Windows Live Mail client. Thunderbird should work though, but of course if you have a hotmail account or you use exchange, your only option will be to use Outlook. Basically with Outlook simply copy/move your folders (right click or drag) that you need from an existing imap/pop/mapi account whatever and put them into the google imap account. It should be that simple, of course it'll mean uploading the email you copy, so if you have a lot of it or are on a slow connection it will take time.

                Thunderbird works just fine (and a lot better than Outlook) for IMAP. When you go into settings to enable IMAP, there's a little link below that will detail for you how to use IMAP with gmail from common email apps (including Thunderbird).

                The servers are:
                imap.gmail.com
                smtp.gmail.com

                The username fields are:
                yourusername@gmail.com

                Once you've added a gmail account to thunderbird, you can add your other IMAP/POP3 accounts (if you haven't already), and drag+drop email between them and gmail.

              Thunderbird can access Hotmail and other webmail accounts with the Webmail extension [mozdev.org]. I'm using it to access my Hotmail and Yahoo accounts. Likewise, Exchange is usually configured to support POP and/or IMAP, meaning any decent mail client can pull emails from it. See http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Connecting_POP_And_IMAP_Clients_To_MS_Exchange_Server.html [msexchange.org] for details. That won't give you access to all the other features, but it will let you get to your mailbox.

    I just went and checked; no IMAP option for me. Just the usual POP ones.

    It'd be nice to get IMAP, though. Right now I basically only do Gmail from one machine, because when I access it from another one, either via Gmail's web interface or via a standalone POP client, everything gets screwed up. There's no tracking of which messages I read through the web interface when I later get them via POP, and emails that I send through the web pop up in my Inbox in Mail later. It's okay if I'm going to be away for a while, say on vacation or something, but it's obnoxious enough that if I'm away for a day or so, I just let it go.

    IMAP would be a huge step up.

    Not sure exactly how they're going to implement this, since I can't see the option in my account as yet. I would imagine they'd have to limit it somehow though, since for accounts with thousands and thousands of emails sitting around in them like mine, the size of even downloading the headers via IMAP would be fairly prohibitive?

    I would guess they'll limit support to a few hundred of the latest mails only or something like that, but if anyone has checked it out and has any information that'd be useful.

      Well, since you can do everything you can do with Folders, with Labels, I expect it really won't be that hard.

      All you need to do for a 'folder' is have a label that says "present in xyz folder." So to put a message in a folder you just tag it with that, and then the 'folder' itself is just a view that only shows messages with that tag. How the messages are actually stored on disk is irrelevant to the user. This means you can use database storage schemes that are much more efficient for large sites than flat files.

      The obvious advantage to a user of tags vs folders is that you can have a single message in more than one psuedo-folder in a tag-based system; in a true folder-based system, you either need to make a copy of the message in order to store it in two folders, or you need to do something nasty with symlinks/pointers.

The only difference is you can have one e-mail be in multiple folders at the same time. By default when you "move" an e-mail into a folder/label Gmail allows you to continue to see that e-mail in your Inbox as well as in that folder/label. If you click archive then you will only see it in that folder/label.

      hi - no offense to your viewpoint, but I find this unfathomable - at work, we use ms outlook/exchange and I despise organizing things into folders - the reason is that some things are applicable to multiple categories - for example, my company has multiple software products and each has a build and automated test cycle - so when product B is built, I get an e-mail about the build, and when it's smoke tested, I get another e-mail - I would like to label these as "product B" (for both e-mails) and "build results" and "test results" for the others, respectively - seems to me that you only gain functionality this way - using gmail's implementation as an example: you can then click on the label that says "product b" and see all the stuff (build and test results) for that product exactly the same way you would as if there were folders ... actually, I just thought of a difference: you don't get a folder hierarchy ... dunno, that doesn't seem like a huge loss to me - is that why you prefer folders? seriously - I'm baffled as to why anyone would prefer folders vs a label/tag system.... to each his own - cheers

    -My "Google Apps for your domain" account, late 2006, has it, admins and regular users.
    -Unlike typical announcements, it's not showing in the upper right. You have to go into your preferences. If you see a "Forwarding & POP" tab, you lack it. If you see a "Forwarding & POP/IMAP" tab...obviously, you have it.
    -All your labels become Subfolders in a "[Gmail]" folder that sits next to your inbox. It also has the spam and All Mail folders (If you have a lot of email, it understandably take FOREVER to load the first time--- "Processing 1 of 7000 email headers")


    It's a great move that's likely to keep me on Gmail, but it seems to play a lot nicer with Outlook 2003 on Win XP Pro than Evolution on Ubuntu Gutsy.One email account is perfect, the other is horrible, and other than the username they have the same exact settings. The one that doesn't work has 600 email headers to download, and the other one downloaded 7,000 in a snap.

  • Or am I just a greedy bastard?
  • Imap can replace web access well enough (e.g. for laptop on the road). But I download multiple gmail accounts from my desktop computer via pop. I don't see how imap could work with multiple accounts. Any ideas?
  • Has anyone seen if this supports the IMAP IDLE [isode.com] mode of operating ?

    This is where your clients stay connected, and the server notifies the mail client when there is mail waiting, rather than having the client repeatedly polling the server.

    If/when they get this working it will be fantastic for those of us with mobile devices who can't afford a high end data plan.

    PS - if you have a Gmail account, and you can't see the IMAP option in settings, log completely out of gmail, close the browser window, and then

    Just to test a theory, I created another account on Gmail, and it had IMAP right from the get to.
  • Well, I have been amazed that a company that has snapped up more genius talent than any other on the planet the past few years could not get its head around IMAP. I mean....WOW!

    Its been my biggest complaint about Gmail. I think I wrote in a suggestion 5 minutes after I got my first Gmail account when it was limited to those invitees for "BETA" (which it still says BETA what's with that crazy silly marketing BS anyway....is someone in love with the word BETA over there?)

    This co-incides slightly with Mac OS X Leopard, in that, the instructional video talked about "how easy it was to automatically use GMail accounts in Mail. Well, I think support by Google may have been pivotal.

    Offtopic, but Google's been making some other new changes to GMail over the past few weeks. The most noticeable of them is that the disk space counter has been sped up dramatically. I'm at 4.3GB right now, which is close to 1.5 times as much space as I had two weeks ago.

    I just tried the new shiny IMAP support in Gmail. All my messages seemed to download quickly and easily, and all seemed well. But a closer look revealed the horrible truth: All non-ASCII characters in all messages (received or sent) have turned into question marks (two or more for each character). So beware!

    It seems that Google have fired all employees that know anything about character encoding issues. Google used to do such things very well, but that is falling apart in a very ugly way. Google Groups was the major example, but now Gmail IMAP has probably taken its place as the major Google character encoding debacle. If it weren't for the fact that the Google Groups character encoding bugs (major bugs!) have remained unsolved (with no reaction whatsoever from the programmers) for a very long time now, I would have supposed that these IMAP bugs will quickly be solved. But I'm not very optimistic, actually.

      I've got a bunch of UTF-8 (with Chinese characters) and GB2312 (also Chinese) encoded emails that worked just fine. But then I've got some others with the same encoding that don't work, and have ? as you said. The only difference I can see is that the mails that work used base64 content-transfer-encoding and the ones that didn't work just use straight 8-bit content-transfer-encoding.

      All the mails I sent myself through Gmail look fine. Lots that I received look fine. But there's some I received that don'

        But it's not all broken as you said.

        True. After searching through my messages I managed to find a few that have not been totally destroyed. But it's still broken enough, I'd say, like "several thousand e-mails turned into garbage"-broken.

      I work for Google, so I know for a fact that we have not "fired all employees that know anything about character encoding issues". We have an internationalization team which works with most customer facing Google products. I personally have tried this with foreign emails written in KOI8-R, UTF-8, GB2312, and ISO-8859-1 charsets. Please go to here [google.com] to contact the gmail team with this issue, or you can reply to me directly with more details (specifically which character set and content transfer encoding were used in the mangled emails), and I will forward your issue to the right people.

    The GMail Team has finally officially commented on the addition of IMAP to GMail on the public About GMail "What's New" page [google.com].

    Also, the Official Gmail Blog [blogspot.com] has more information on the Gmail IMAP implementation and how it works across devices [blogspot.com].

    Very cool.

    Now just to sound like an annoying ingrate, here's my remaining list:
    * LDAP-access to the contacts
    * mobile sync for calendar
    * mobile sync for contacts, notes, etc.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
