lost mails transferring

I have been following the instructions of transferring mails from my Freeserve Address over to Gmail. It doesn't work. It takes ages with a constant sign saying try later. Now it has lost an incredible amount of personal and vital information. How is it possible that something so important is being dealt with so badly. This is financial and deeply important information. Is anyone from EE going to help in anyway?

Re: lost mails transferring

That GMail error msg is usually a sign that you've only sent items in your Inbox. POP3 doesn't see sent items. You need to forward those individually.

 

What domain is your email addy on?

Re: lost mails transferring

The mails that have got lost are mails that were sent to me. They were absolutely private and important information. Yes. The only mails remaining in the inbox were sent ones from me. This is a complete nightmare. I am not an expert and have no intention of becoming

one. It has taken me four hours to lose this information and there are thousands more emails to transfer yet. 

I don't understand your domain question.

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

 

@wendymh1: Did you tell GMail Import to leave copies of msgs on the server?

Re: lost mails transferring

I am not sure if i asked for things to remain on the server.

I have also just now tried to forward mails and only 3 out of 6 have arrived.

Re: lost mails transferring

In GMail is there a folder called "Archive"? You may have ticked the "Archive" box in Import. Have you looked there? Also the "All Mail" folder (under More ...)?

 

If GMail has deleted them from Orange it must have read them to somewhere within itself.

Re: lost mails transferring

mails are still disappearing. any idea how to go about this now? they are not archived. the transfer signal still says cannot do now- please try later- but mails have disappeared from the inbox. once more sensitive information but too much to send one at a time.

Re: lost mails transferring

It may be that "Try later" means just that. You may just have to wait until it's finished the last Import.
