    Hi. I am new to the forum and this is my first posts. I am confounded by a problem. I have a VPS, where I have set up the email using cPanel. We use Thunderbird to view and reply to our emails.

    Lets say our domain name is www.abc.com our mail IMAP address for email is mail.abc.com . We have seven users in the domain. user1@abc.com ... user7@abc.com

    I wish to use Google Apps for our domain. (As we are less than 10 users, it is going to be free of cost. The advantage being, just in case our VPS is down, we still continue to access our emails.)

    I have accordingly signed up with google apps for email www.abc.com

    Now my problem is how do I transfer my emails from my VPS to google apps (that is google servers)?

    I have created the same user ids that I have had with cPanel on Google Apps. When I log on the Google Apps for user1@abc.com and try to import the email from user1@abc.com, this apparently doesnt work.

    I have not changed the MX records, they still point to my IMAP email account.

    One option being, I start afresh on Google Apps and forget about our email history. I however do not want this.

    Can you please help?

    Thanks for your reply. I have already read through the article, before posting. Imapsync is now a paid software which uses commandline. I work on an windows platform.
    The POP grabber on gmail seems not working. I would appreciate if there is any other workaround.

    Lets say you're using Thunderbird; set up 2 accounts - one for cPanel IMAP, one for GApps IMAP.

    Then, just move old emails/folders by drag-and-drop from old account to new one :)

    It takes 5 minutes and it works pretty well. Once finished, move your MX records.

    You edit the cfg file with the list of accounts/passwords and run it from cmd prompt.

    Is this still also possible even if I have changed the MX records already?
    it used to be on hostgator's, but as of Sept 23, I have them on gmail (Google Apps)

    I need to migrate my old emails from Sept 22 and older.
    Google suggested the ff:

    1. mail fetcher.
    simple to do
    but does not save the folder structure of our mail accounts
    info: Mail Fetcher - Gmail Help



    2. Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange (GAMME) tool.
    a bit complex but
    we can save the folder structure of our emails
    tool : https://tools.google.com/dlpage/exchangemigration.

    instructions on migration: http://static.googleusercontent.com...n/en/gapps_exchange_migration/gamme_admin.pdf.

    but it seems very complex.

    Before I do anything, I would like to ask
    can I still do the drag and drop on Thunderbird?
