Step 7: Click the Save button, and the next page should look similar to this:
Step 8: Click the Mail menu item up top and you’ll now see a “Remote Accounts” folder. Click it’s folder icon.
Step 9: Now click OldServer and it will ask you for the password for the old account.
Enter the password and all your old folders should appear.
- Unfortunately, copying folders directly between servers is not supported, so you will have to create folders a.k.a. “mailboxes” (Under “Folder Actions”)
- Then, copy messages by highlighting from the old folder, holding the CTRL key and dragging them to the new folder.
Step 10: When you have finished moving mail from the old account to the new, please go through the first few steps on this page and remove the remote account from your mail preferences.
