I am trying to transfer all of my email conversations

Customer Question

Hello, I am trying to transfer all of my email conversations (sent/received/archive folders) from a godaddy email address (****@****************.com) to a newly created gmail address ([email protected]). I began the transfer under the import options in gmail, but I'm not seeing my sent messages come through. Is there a way to do a transfer such that the whole conversations come through as well as the folder structure?

I'd rather not connect remotely, but is there a way that you can walk me through the steps?
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 10 months ago.

Yes, Download Thunderbird and Add GoDaddy Account as IMAP. Then, add Gmail account as IMAP and move Sent Mails from GoDaddy to the Gmail's sent folder.

Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 10 months ago.

You can also move the entire folder structure this way.

Will this maintain the folder structure as well?
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 10 months ago.

You will just drag and drop to Gmail, so it is like copying the exact thing from GoDaddy to Gmail.
