I am unhappy with the response and would like a Mac Expert with experience to respond to me.
That would work if i had access to the apple mail. this computer was given to me and the previous owner had a password XXXXX enter the apple mail that i have no way of knowing or getting.
which default application should i use to open the .exe file (how it's downloading)?
Got it - Thank You! Now that it's downloaded, what do I do?
sorry - i'm totally lost now (yes, I am very limited in this area). So, I have downloaded and dragged the new application into my application folder. Does that mean it is running or not? And then, I was confused by the settings you described earlier. Can you give a step by step from having dragged the app into app folder, to the point of having all my emails transferred? I know that's a lot to ask, but I truly am doing the best i can. this stuff is sooooo hard for me.
When it launched, it asked for my gmail account. I gave it my old one. it opened up with its own design that doesn't have the settings gear icon and is much harder for me to navigate. will i have to use this from now on? and, how do I log into gmail for my other account (and this account if with my original gmail format)?
Ok - that helped a lot!! Now, how do I drag and drop over a year's worth of emails without going crazy?
that would probably still take hours to go page by page. is there no way to check "all messages" from a certain date, or to tell it to grab them some other way? I could have done the manual transfer from gmail itself...
that would be great, but when i drag the old inbox folder to the new one, it doesn't 'grab' or take it in...
that is working - YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!! now i want to know if there is a way to recall the labels/tags that i had on each email... or is that info all lost forever???
Actually, what is the simplest way to copy the label folders? The label folders are still there with all the labeled emails in them. I have about a dozen label folders. There must be a simple way to re-create those folders under the new email address - what would be the best way to do that?
Just did all that and it seemed to be going great, then realized it was taking a very long time and was showing that it was (still?) moving the huge numbers of emails that were in the inbox (although that seemed to be completed)... Then accidentally closed thunderbird and cannot figure out how to get into my thunderbird gmail again...
I have a thunderbird icon on my side bar. it has a black arrow/triangle on the right, indicating that it is open. And when i go into applications and click, it tells me that it is already open. But i don't see the window with the emails anywhere...
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! YOU HAVE BEEN SOOOO HELPFUL!!! Just one more question... With my old laptop (figured out that right click is ctrl+click) should i wait until each file content transfer is complete before starting the next one? Can it overwhelm the computer to do them all at once? or does it not matter?
