NEW Gmail Feature : Import Contacts & Messages

This new feature from Gmail allow you to Import contacts & messages from Yahoo!, Hotmail, AOL, or other webmail or POP3 accounts. If you're switching to Gmail from another email provider, importing contacts and messages from your old email account can help.

Procedure to Import
  • Click the Settings link in the top right-hand corner of your inbox.
  • Under the Accounts and Import tab, click the Import mail and contacts button.
  • In the new window that opens, enter the email address of the account you'd like to import and/or contacts from. Click Continue.
  • Enter the password for your other email account. Click Continue.
  • Please select all the checkboxes that apply:
  1. If you choose to import contacts, the information in your contacts list from your old account will be imported to your Contacts section in Gmail.
  2. If you select the Import mail checkbox, your existing messages in that account will be imported to your Gmail inbox.
  3. If you like, you can also select the Import new mail for next 30 days checkbox so that messages sent to your old account within the next 30 days will be automatically imported to your Gmail account. These messages won't appear in Gmail immediately once they're sent to your other account, but this should update within a day or two. Please note that this doesn´t establish a permanent connection between the accounts, but terminates after 30 days. For tips on how to connect two accounts permanently, you should use Mail Fetcher.
  4. Finally, you can automatically apply a label to your imported messages to indicate that those were sent to your other account.
Don´t forget to click Start import after you´ve made your selection.
  • Your contacts and/or messages will now be imported. It may take 24-48 hours before you see your imported messages, so don't worry if they´re not there as soon as you click OK.
  • You can check the status of your import by clicking the Accounts and Import tab on the Settings page.
