I have a POP email from Network Solutions and an iMap email from the same company
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
Same company, but is it same email address or two different email addresses? Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Lets make it simple. First scenario I have a***@******.*** (iMap) account on one Mac and the same account (iMap) on another. I want to merge the two without duplicates. I also have a***@******.*** account (POP) on one of the Macs that I want to merge into the iMap account without duplicates. All accounts are with Network solutions.
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
So this is the same email address on all computers. Are all the email messages all in the IMAP account already? i.e., anything in POP account should be in IMAP account already right?
Please let me know. Thank you.

There are two scenarios. Lets take them one at a time.
Scenario 1Two Macs with latest software Both have an iMap account from the same company. (Network Solutions). These accounts should be the same but they are not. I need to merge them and not have duplicates.Scenario 2On a single Mac I have a POP and iMap account from the same company with the same email. The POP account is no longer active. I want to move the archived emails to the iMap account (about 9000 emails). Again no duplicates.
Mac Support Specialist: Viet - Mac Tech, Mac Support Tech replied 3 years ago
I'm sorry, it is strange that the IMAP accounts are not the same. I'm not sure about this issue, so let me open this issue to other experts. Thank you.

IMAP accounts with the same email address have to be the same by design if they are not then something happened in the email program and just deleting the account and setting it up again should make it straight. As far as the POP account you will have to export all the email from that account and then import them to the IMAP version but duplicates can happen there is no way to eliminate that. Also there is a great app called Emailchemy that may help you automate this process:

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
