importing e mail from orange to g mail problems

I am having nothing but bother trying to import e mails from Orange to G mail ahead of the closure of orange e mail in May.

 

It imports a few then gives up completely for days and nothing else happens.  It will import new ones but old ones I have transferred to the inbox will not all go.  I have repeatedly deleted and re entered the details in G Mail Accounts and Import settings but it will not import all e mails.

 

Does any body know if EE has the facility to import all e mails from my orange inbox to my G mail address on my behalf as I am unable to carry out this by following the instructions?

No, that's not your POP Username; it's your POP Server!

 

POP Username = Everything after the '@' in your email addy.

Hi and welcome to the Community @26table.

 

Unfortunately, we can't do the move for you, but we can try and assist to work out what the issue may be.

 

Please can you provide the following in order for us to help:

 

  • Which domain do you use for your email?
  • Have you moved your Sent items over to your inbox?

Many thanks,

Re: importing e mail from orange to g mail problems

Hello,

By domain I assume you mean my orange e mail address

*************.freeserve.co.uk

 

[MOD EDIT: Please do not post personal details on a public forum]

I have moved a batch of about 100 e mails that I want to be transferred all
from various folders not the sent items folder. I have repeatedly entered
the details in 3 g mail accounts and at most 20 got pulled through.

I have followed the instructions given by EE to the letter and have tried
using both member and andrew before the @ sign.

Regards
Andrew

For what? Not the POP Username, I hope!

Re: importing e mail from orange to g mail problems

I have had a similar problem.  I followed the instructions and all the E-mails in my orange inbox disappeared, but have not appeared G-mail.

New E-mails that arrive for Orange are transferred.

@artur0: What domain is your email addy on (the bit after your name)?
