Why, for the love of god (as atheist I am), do they not include IMAP in Google Apps. At least they should offer migration from one GMail account to another. I mean, they have full access their own data. It should be easy to move from one account to another with the tags and stuff intact. In that way they can keep track of the personal data.I have about 8500 mail in my account. I downloaded all of these to my computer through pop. The reason is that I though that GMail loader
could solve the problem with uploading, and I wanted a local copy as well before I started fiddling with my accounts.Well GMail loader can, in some way severely limited way solve your problem. It sends the mail up via SMPT. But, apart from being painfully slow, in about 150 mails, my provider shut down my SMTP (well, if I was spamming this would be a good idea). So now I have all mails stuck in my thunderbird box.Next step then, upload them to our old email server via IMAP, and then POP from there. Luckily we still have it. The result: well it works, kind of. The first 200 got there immediately, the next took two minutes, third took four minutes. And now it has been silent for about an hour. If this continues I suspect that I would never get all 8500 mails up there.So my question is: If you want to give mail space to the masses, and start analyzing their mail for free, you'd better support the masses with the tools they need. Never delete another email again
, well not until you support the users. If you want to sell a premium service coming soon
isn't soon enough.I'll keep you posted on my progress... and anyone having a better solution leave a comment.
