Transferring old messages to gmail


#1

Once have all my existing email accounts created in gmail and tell Dreamhost to use gmail in the dreamhost control panel - I am assuming I have to transfer my old email addresses manually, or at least I think it doesn’t automatically transfer the messages for me.

Once gmail is my active email system, can I still get into the imap on dreamhost to pull the old messages across? I only have like 6 accounts to do and I am using the free googleapps not buying up to the corporate one.

Thanks in advance

Yes, you do have to transfer any messages you want moved manually, and you can get into IMAP to do that! Check out this link in our wiki:
